When is it Advantageous to Maximise Swath Width?

Production seafloor surveys for hydrography require careful planning, balancing many factors for operational efficiency. Requirements for meeting International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) standards for horizontal and vertical uncertainty and object detection must be met, while maximising coverage area in as short a time as possible. One may then pose the question, “When is it advantageous to maximise the swath width?” The answer might be surprising. Background To meet IHO requirements for vertical uncertainty, swath mapping have... (read more)
