Airborne Lasers Assess Flood Risks

Highly accurate 3D digital maps, captured from aircraft-mounted lasers, are being used to assess the risk of flooding at critical utility sites across the UK. The project, undertaken by Ambiental on behalf of one of the UK's largest water companies, used LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data supplied by aerial survey specialist Bluesky to help examine the likelihood, extent and depth of potential flooding as part of a review of flood defence measures at each of the five sites. The Bluesky data is part of 3D terrain map, available online, that covers most of England and Wales including all major... (read more)

Gas Exploration Beyond the Shelf Break: An Oceanographic Challenge.

Thiem, O., Berntsen, J., Eldevik, T. and Alendal, G., 2006.Environmental Modelling & Software Progress in Marine Environmental Modelling, 21: pp 136-141.Norway’s second largest gas field, Ormen Lange, is located 140km west off Kristiansund at an unprecedented depth when it comes to exploration. It will be the first Norwegian project beyond the shelf break. Exploration and development of the field is thus a challenge. An important issue during the planning stage is to understand the current conditions and hydrography of the site. This is especially important regarding pipeline design, deployment and operations. A complicating factor for estimating design currents is the... (read more)

Marine Data Management Software

Ocean Business 2009 will see the launch of a software solution designed for the management of marine information. SeaZone's GeoTemporal software allows import, processing and presentation of marine data from multiple sources. It then creates standard formatted data so that the information can be used in different Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Previously only specialist software programs had existed and offered limited data interchange capability.   SeaZone GeoTemporal represents a second generation of software allowing the management of a wide diversity of data with greatly improved levels of interoperability. This ensures marine information can be made widely available for further use... (read more)

BDHA for Windows

PCAL Technology Ltd has released ‘BDHA for Windows’ software, which provides Quality Control and modelling functionality for Swathe Bathymetry XYZ data. BDHA (Bathymetry Data Handling and Analysis) for Windows enables multiple XYZ datafiles to be analysed simultaneously to provide an independent and objective assessment of the consistency of the acquired data. The software is a tool for client representatives to check the quality and accuracy of swathe bathymetry during a hydrographic survey. Statistical parameters such as coverage, density of soundings, mean, minimum and maximum depth and standard deviation are calculated automatically and can be displayed in the main viewer window...
