Major Increase of Number of ENCs in Primar Database

During the first six months of 2015, PRIMAR (Norway) has shown strong growth. In this period, the PRIMAR database has grown from 12,415 to 14,022 ENCs, which is more than 12% growth of the entire database. Most of the increase is due to the release of new ENCs coming from China (C1) with 461 ENCs, China Pearl River Delta (CN and C3) with 41 ENCs, Indonesia (ID) with 402 ENCs, Korea (KR) with 168 ENCs and recently Iran (IR) with 19 ENCs. The release of these ENCs is an important step towards achieving global ENC coverage and improving safety at... (read more)

New Versions of Bathy DataBASE, HIPS and SIPS Released

With HIPS and SIPS and the Bathy DataBASE (BDB) suites of products being closely aligned, the BDB 4.3 release follows hot on the heels of HIPS and SIPS 10.2. These product lines now share a common core promoting tighter data interoperability. The 4.3 release of BDB now includes import and export for the generic Lidar format LAS 1.4. This is an important step in facilitating Lidar and laser scanning workflows and downstream data analysis. BDB 4.3 also supports the creation and management of Variable Resolution (VR) Surfaces. This capability allows for continuous model creation, which can be contoured in a... (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)

CARIS HPD Advances

CARIS has released version 2.0 of its Hydrographic Production Database (HPD). Built on Oracle, HPD combines a Source Database and Product Database in one solution, providing seamless and non-redundant storage and maintenance of spatial and non-spatial data used for all hydrographic products. The Product Database delivers storage and maintenance of product definitions including coverage and cartographic representations and historical versions of products. Using the same data model in the Source and Product Databases means changes in the source data can be tracked all the way to the product(s) using it. When a product is created, it is not cut loose...
