CARIS Hydrographic Production Database Adopted by Ecuador

The Oceanographic Institute of the Navy of Ecuador (INOCAR) has selected CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) to move to database-driven hydrographic production system. According to CEO Dr. Salem Masry, Educator represents the 18th nation to have adopted HPD in their hydrographic production workflow. INOCAR has selected a full implementation of HPD which will include HPD Server, Source Editor, S-57 ENC Editor and Paper Chart Editor. A ten-day training session is being planned now and will be hosted in Ecuador shortly. The INOCAR implementation will be a phased-in approach, beginning with the production of S-57 ENC then moving to Paper Charts.... (read more)

NOAA Awards Photo Science Five-Year Shoreline Mapping Contract

Photo Science was awarded a five-year IDC contract by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide aerial photography and photogrammetric mapping services to support of the nationwide Shoreline Mapping Program. Photo Science will assist NOAA in delineating approximately 95,000 miles of shoreline and provide an official and accurate delineation of the National Shoreline. This will be accomplished via stereo photogrammetry using tide-coordinated aerial photography controlled by kinematic GPS techniques. This process produces a seamless, digital database of the national shoreline and a database of aerial photography which will help establish the legal authority when determining the official shoreline...

Caris HPD 2.4 Adds AML Product Editors

Caris has released Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) version 2.4. With new product editors, new database support and new utility programs, the HPD user group of national hydrographic offices will advance towards an integrated hydrographic data management and production environment. The release of version 2.4 combines ideas and feedback from CARIS HPD users. Eighteen nations use HPD in their hydrographic production workflow. Among the highlights of 2.4 is the release of two new product editor programs. Additional Military Layer (AML) Editor for creation of S-57 format AML products and Generic Product Editor for interactive, graphical extraction of ‘product neutral’ features, based... (read more)

SRD Completes Ninth Survey of Major Gas Pipelines

SRD, (Sonar Research and Development), has completed a major survey campaign on behalf of the seabed to surface engineering and construction contractor, Acergy, to inspect pipeline landfalls at various points on the UK's east coast. SRD were commissioned to undertake landfall and beach surveys of nine pipelines as a part of a BP contract of Acergy. These surveys provide data for shallow water inshore segments, typically 3km long, which could not be acquired by larger vessels using ROV-based inspection techniques. This is the ninth such survey programme carried out by SRD for Acergy in the last 10 years. Surveys were... (read more)

C&C Technologies Assists NOAA in Katrina Debris Mapping

The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently has awarded C&C Technologies a contract to locate underwater hurricane debris along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. C&C is employing shallow water sonar equipment to provide precise locations of marine hazards and to aid in their subsequent recovery. Data collected by several small survey vessels is provided to NOAA on a weekly basis for inclusion in a comprehensive database. David A. Sampson, Deputy Directory of the Department of Commerce, recently visited a project site in Biloxi, Mississippi. The Federal Government is committed to solve the marine debris problem, which has had a toll on... (read more)

LINZ Hydrographic Infrastructure Project

Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) is the New Zealand Government's steward of authoritative hydrographic information for nautical charts and publications and provides the hydrographic infrastructure to support these services and products. This includes the policy, administration, people, technology and spatial information. LINZ inherited the infrastructure from the Royal New Zealand Navy in 1996. Digital and analogue data are stored in numerous datasets. However, the information is primarily in hard copy and there is no consistent metadata across these datasets. This system is not responding to the demands of the organisation and its clients. LINZ has sought an approach to standardising... (read more)

CARIS Bathymetric Data Management Software

CARIS has released Bathy DataBASE 2.0 for the creation and management of bathymetric surfaces. Bathy DataBASE was developed to allow hydrographers to overcome obstacles of large bathymetric data sets and data sources. The software allows users to validate, prepare and compile bathymetric data from multiple formats and sources to create products. Among some of the features of Version 2.0 are new source data management and storage tools, Subset Editor for point editing, redesigned 3D graphics display and navigation tools, and true position contouring. With ever expanding volumes of raw multibeam survey data and large numbers of archived historical data sources,... (read more)
