Canadian Hydro Info Network Complete

  28/06/2011
CARIS' Bathy DataBASE (BDB) software has provided the last link of a 25 year project enabling the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) to implement their Hydrographic Information Network. This project involved innovative changes, including adopting a multi-disciplinary organisational structure and more flexible management style, as well as embracing and developing new technological applications.

  Inauguration of the Canadian Hydrographic Information Network

The end result is that CHS hydrographers now have the best possible understanding of the acquisition, processing and the validation of data in an environment that promotes the continuous improvement and standardisation of procedures.

 

The implementation of BDB is the final link in the Hydrographic Information Network. BDB utilises the latest database server technology that allows for the management and analysis of all of CHS' bathymetry in one coherent structure. BDB allows multi-beam, single-beam, Lidar, and historical soundings from a variety of sources to be brought together and managed for effective validation, analysis and product extraction.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor

 

Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
