Bathy Database 3.0 Integrates Land and Sea

Bathy DataBASE 3.0 continues to build on its sophisticated CSAR Framework that provides support for the display and manipulation of billions of points in both 2D and 3D. The package now supports the USGS grid format data and also allows its bathymetry to be easily exported to KMZ for display in Google Earth. This latest release also provides improved land and sea data integration allowing topographic DEMs (Digital Elevation Models) to be seamless combined and managed with bathymetric surfaces.The 3.0 release also sees the first phase of utilising a third party Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) for the backend storage...

More Wrecks in Database Than Charted

Although there are thousands of recorded shipwrecks, many of them are not shown on navigation charts, since such charts only contain wrecks which are considered to be a navigational hazard. SeaZone provides a database of UK wreck information plus extensive worldwide coverage. The data has been captured from multiple sources, detailing wreck location and additional information including wreck depth, identification, state, cargo and circumstance of loss.   SeaZone can provide information relating to wrecks in a specific geographic area or can make the whole wreck database available under license. This information is fully available for use in customer GIS systems.... (read more)

Panama Canal Authority Adopts CARIS Bathy DataBASE

In its expansion using CARIS technology, the Panama Canal Authority has recently adopted CARIS Bathy DataBASE for storing and managing the CanalĀ“s bathymetric information. The waterway's heavy traffic and expansion operations called for a robust and efficient method to manage survey data. The implementation of Bathy DataBASE will also contribute to the constant monitoring of navigation channel conditions, as well as ongoing dredging operations.   The Panama Canal Authority has been using CARIS HPD since 2012 for chart production as part of the Panama Canal expansion project. It is expected that the Panama Canal Authority will be making full use... (read more)

Finland Selects CARIS Hydrographic Production Database

The Finnish Transport Agency Liikennevirasto (FTA) has selected the CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) as the new system for chart production for its current and future needs. With many lakes, an archipelagic sea and an estimated 40,000 islands, the FTA has a large and complex portfolio of navigational charts to maintain. The project to implement HPD will include deployment of software and the migration of existing products into an optimised workflow where data is centrally managed and various product types are derived from one updated source. The system will provide a platform where user-friendly, efficient tools and processes are of... (read more)

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)

Backscatter from Ping to Database - a CHS Perspective

The Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) is willing to make better use of the backscatter intensity data collected with its multibeam sounding systems. Because the backscatter data collected during the last two decades was not systematically processed and maintained, much valuable information has not yet been used and is archived on tapes and disks. CHS intends to make an inventory of this data and to process it to a minimum level so that it can be made accessible both to its cartographers and to the wider scientific community. Backscatter information can be a valuable piece of information for traditional chart production,... (read more)
