Dredging Point-cloud Software

Charting underwater structures, soils and project progression using GPS, sonar, single and multibeam systems produces a huge amount of data that needs to be analysed. Vast project areas can be analysed with the Point Cloud package by Pythagoras that includes user-friendly drawing, calculation and design tools and 3D visualisation of large point-cloud files and vector data. Datasets coming from total stations, GPS instruments, laser scanners, mobile mappers, UAV and drones, single and multibeam systems and other CAD and GIS software packages can be handled and processed. Calculating volumes, contour lines, cross sections, profiles, terrain models and exporting machine control datasets... (read more)

Moving UXO Classification to the Cloud

Geosoft is partnering with Acorn Science and Innovation to create a cloud-based technology solution for unexploded ordnance (UXO) classification projects. The three-year project, funded by the US Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), will deliver a cloud prototype for classifying buried metal as either UXO or non-hazardous clutter based on the analysis of electromagnetic induction (EMI) data. UXO classification requires several players working in different locations, currently on personal computers. This includes field technicians, data processors, data analysts, government project managers and geophysicists, and regulators. Data collected using advanced electromagnetic (EM) sensors in the field are sent... (read more)

Ocean Business: AUVs, Cloud Technology and Many Visitors

This year’s Ocean Business conference had a busy programme. The traditional programme of trade show, live demonstrations and workshops is gaining more popularity among the hydrographic community. Ocean Business welcomed 4111 visitors from 65 countries between 9 and 11 April 2013. The FIG and IHO organised a seminar on the Blue economy during Ocean Business. Government as well as non-governmental organisations discussed the various possibilities within Hydrography during the one-day seminar Blue Economy. Hydrography provides far more than just creating maps for the safety of navigation. The Offshore Survey conference highlighted a wide range of topics. As was already apparent... (read more)

Satellites Guide Ships in Icy Waters through the Cloud

In late August, the 60m-long US Coast Guard Cutter 'Maple' completed its navigation through the Arctic’s ice-ridden Northwest Passage. While ships have taken this route before, this was the first time that the International Ice Patrol had provided iceberg information based exclusively on satellite imagery. Established in 1914 in response to the sinking of the Titanic, the US Coast Guard International Ice Patrol (IIP) monitors iceberg danger in the North Atlantic Ocean for shipping safety. When the Maple departed from Alaska in mid-July en route through the Arctic to Maryland, USA, the IIP was on guard to assist the crew... (read more)

QPS Launches 3D Point Cloud Display in QINSy

As part of its continuous development programme, QPS is launching real-time 3D Point Cloud display as part of its QINSy package at Ocean Business 2017. This display is built upon a new 3D engine that is a QPS in-house development working with Fledermaus technology. The display shows multibeam and laser fully geo-referenced point clouds, and the point cloud can be coloured in many ways. It’s a tool for real-time quality control of your integrated system. The display will be available with the QINSy 8.16 release that is scheduled for April 2017. Visit QPS during Ocean Business 2017 (booth U1) to... (read more)

Real Time Point Cloud for Multibeam and Topo Laser Surveys

US-based HYPACK has released its Real Time Point Cloud. This release is an upgrade to the HYPACK2014 release. The application runs in conjunction with HYSWEEP SURVEY and displays both multibeam and topographic laser data in a corrected and geo-referenced colour-coded point cloud. Real Time Point Cloud is developed to be useful for easier feature detection and categorisation, system calibration and verification, and data quality control. This program enhances the already powerful multibeam and topographic laser collection capabilities of HYSWEEP®. The application can provide for real time QC on overlapping swaths and keeps track of the last 3,000,000 data points and... (read more)

Streaming Cloud-based ENC Data for a Real-time ECS

A Cloud-based Infrastructure Specifically Designed for Marine Navigation
NaAVIC is a free and downloadable electronic voyage application that goes beyond the traditional Electronic Chart System (ECS) app whereby the data, including the ENC information, does not physically reside within the onboard computer. Instead, all the data is streamed from an up-to-date database that exists in the cloud. The on-demand data delivery model is not confined to conventional chart data. Whilst it includes ENC-derived data as a base layer, it is also designed to take additional data layers. These layers can be user-selected according to their needs to enhance the ECS capabilities. For example, the list can include raster... (read more)
