Thales Tool for ArcGIS Users

Thales GeoSolutions (Pacific) has introduced a new export utility, DXF Page Exporter, providing ESRI ArcGIS users with the ability to export a map frame or a page layout as a DXF file. In addition to enabling Geographic Information System (GIS) users to export data to DXF files, DXF Page Exporter now allows the export of a map to a DXF file at the same time, preserving the map symbology. DXF Page Exporter can export layouts and map frames from ArcMap, preserving line widths, line types, polygon fills and hatches. Layouts and map frames can be exported in inches or millimetres,...

Grensmaas Project: River Survey for Flood Control

The planned widening of the Dutch Maas river (Meuse) represents a landscape correction that will prevent future flooding. Gravel barriers are being prepared in order to buffer any additional flow. Hydrography is imperative in this region. The river will be at its widest point at the town of Itteren.   PS Survey performed the underwater surveys. A sounding vehicle moved across the surface using multibeam sonar to collect millions of points to profile the river floor in 3D. These points were then imported into Pythagoras CAD software which converted the point-cloud into a digital terrain model (DTM).   Because of... (read more)

Contract for Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

Marport has been awarded a contract valued at approximately CAD1 million to supply its SQX-1 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) to an international geodetic survey company. Karl Kenny, CEO of Marport said that no work in the offshore industry can proceed efficiently without proper subsea survey information. From initial surveys, through to the commissioning of offshore installations and pipelines, survey data is the critical link between the various pieces of a complex infrastructure.     Marport's SQX-1 AUV is a hydro-dynamically stable platform designed for reliable performance and low life-cycle cost. Employing a propulsion and control system based on thrust vectoring,... (read more)

NaviModel DTM Software

NaviModel software for ocean mapping, data analysis and interpretation provides intuitive 3D visualiasation of infinite survey data sets by import of multiple data formats and sources using user-defined templates. NaviModel includes features for data cleaning either manually or through use of advanced semi or fully automated tools as well as creation of own filters by use of plug-in function. Digital terrain models (DTM) are displayed in real-time fly-through fashion featuring different color modes and palettes in addition to adjustment of light source. Difference models and volume calculations are visualised by colouring the resulting DTM in difference modes. Terrain manipulation is... (read more)
