|Blom has been awarded a bathymetric laser scanning (Lidar) contract by the Center for Underwater Archeology for a survey of the coastline of the Black Sea in Bulgaria. The Center for Underwater Archeology is the public organization in Bulgaria responsible for the protection and preservation of the Bulgarian underwater cultural heritage. The project is established to identify archaeological sites on the Bulgarian coastline to enhance maritime cultural resource preservation and protection and enable further scientific research.|
The bathymetric Lidar scanning survey will be carried out by Blom Bulgaria and Blom Aerofilms, Blom's UK subsidiary. The survey covers app. 100km2 of the Bulgarian coastline in the Black Sea. The project will be carried out using Hawkeye technology.

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files
QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
