Software for Hydrographic Surveying

In 1981, after working with the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office as a field hydrographer and completing a graduate business degree, Pat Sanders founded ’Coastal Oceanographics’. The purpose of the company was to provide hydrographic consulting for companies with large hydrographic survey contracts. As a part of his consulting practice, Sanders wrote Fortran-based programs to manually enter raw hydrographic data to produce smooth sheets. His first ‘portable’ computer was a 40 pound, Columbia Data Systems machine with 640 kilobytes of RAM, a 10 megabyte hard drive, and a yellow monochrome monitor. By 1987, he and a few colleagues had developed an... (read more)

A Software Perspective

The Effect of Hydrography on Unmanned Systems
The field of hydrography is poised to make some substantial contributions to the unmanned systems community. The mantra of ‘making a map is easy, but doing hydrography is hard positions hydrographic practitioners favourably into the world of unmanned systems. Moreover, these technologies, once limited to defence and academia, are currently undergoing an expansion into the commercial realm. Not only has this increased the facility of using unmanned systems, it has also spawned innovative uses of these technologies and has blurred the lines between the traditional surveying community to the benefit of all. By Vitad “V” Pradith, HYPACK, USA. As the healthy... (read more)

DP Software Package

Veripos has introduced Verify DPx, a status monitoring and display software package specifically designed for dynamic positioning applications. The package operates in conjunction with Veripos LD3 integrated mobile units and is available as standard within a compact 15-inch touch screen panel PC. It can also be supplied to run on customers' own hardware.   The system provides quality control supported by high-resolution graphic displays via simplified touch screen controls. Screen displays in turn provide continuous QC information using Veripos' traffic light system which enables users to monitor positional and system performance status continuously. A key feature also is a 12-hour... (read more)
