Surveys improve with faster data handling and better positioning
Hydrographic surveys can now handle large multibeam sonar datasets even faster and make use of improved georeferencing and motion control technology. Sean Ottewell explains.
Hydrographische Gutachten können jetzt umfangreiche Fächersonar-Datensätze noch schneller bearbeiten und nutzen verbesserte Georeferenzierung und Bewegungssteuerungs- Technologie. Sean Ottewell erklärt.
Los estudios hidrográficos ahora pueden gestionar con mayor agilidad grandes conjuntos de datos de sonares multihaz y utilizar la tecnología mejorada de georeferenciación y de control de movimiento. Explica Sean Ottewell.
ARIS, a leading marine geospatial software supplier, has released a 64-bit version of its comprehensive
hydrographic processing software HIPS and SIPS. HIPS and SIPS 7.1 with 64-bit support will provide users who have access to a 64-bit computer the ability to handle large multibeam sonar datasets even faster. Tis will provide organisations with significant timesavings, which is crucial for marine surveying organisations that wish to make efficiencies. In-house tests revealed that the CUBE
surface creation and Merge processes are now 15-30 per cent faster respectively. Te 64-bit technology also allows access to larger banks of RAM increasing the ability to multi-task while processing. HIPS and SIPS supports more than 40 sonar and LiDAR formats, allowing it to process data from virtually any system configuration. Te software also includes
the latest seafloor classification tools and workflows, allowing the optimum amount of information to be extracted from organisations’ seafloor measurements. Corey Collins, HIPS and SIPS product
manager, enthuses about what the latest release means to CARIS’ clients: “With this release of HIPS and SIPS we have listened carefully to what our clients have requested. Tey are telling the team here that support for 64-bit processing power is becoming a priority due to the increasing size of their sonar data. Tey are telling us that they want the most stable hydrographic processing application available on the market. We are happy that we are able to deliver on these priorities with the release of HIPS and SIPS 7.1.” A new licence string will be required to
make use of the new 7.1 features. Each of the individual licences are unique and will only work with the corresponding HIPS and SIPS 7.1 software, as well as earlier versions.
