Spatial Fusion Enterprise 5.3

CARIS has released Spatial Fusion Enterprise (SFE) version 5.3 featuring the new Web Map Tile Service (WMTS). SFE allows an organisation to deliver its geospatial information to the Web using open standards and the latest technology. WMTS is an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard that improves the performance and scalability of Web-mapping by using "tiles" of pre-rendered data. This offers performance benefits over the popular OGC Web Map Service (WMS) standard. By requesting map images from the server combined with the ability to store the images for future use, performance gains through WMTS are significant.CARIS allows multiple layers from any...

Royal Navy Ship Discovers Uncharted Red Sea Canyon

HMS Enterprise, a multi-role survey vessel - hydrographic oceanographic (SVHO) of the British Royal Navy, has recently produced a series of stunning images of a Grand Canyon-style ocean floor hidden deep under the Red Sea. The vessel used her surveying equipment to reveal the natural wonder during her nine-month mission to improve understanding of the waters east of Suez. Discovering the 250-metre-deep canyon after leaving the Egyptian port of Safaga, the ship used her sophisticated multibeam echo sounder to create the 3D images, allowing the ocean floor to be seen for the first time.
