FarSounder Joins NOAA as a Trusted Node

FarSounder is the most recent company to join the International Hydrographic Organization’s Crowd-Sourced Bathymetry (CSB) initiative by becoming a “trusted node” with the NOAA. This project enables mariners to voluntarily contribute seafloor depths measured from their vessels to NOAA’s data repository. The partnership can be seen as a logical step because FarSounder’s customers regularly travel to remote areas with poorly maintained nautical charts, using a FarSounder 3D-FLS for real-time navigation. Due to the development of FarSounder’s Local History Mapping (LHM), the latest feature of its SonaSoft software, users now have the ability to create a real-time chart of the seafloor... (read more)
