Perspectives of the combined Multibeam Sonar and Airborne Bathymetric Lidar datasets for hydrographic charting of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. The merged sensor data allowed continuous land-seabed coverage for complete cartographic description. Airborne Bathymetric Lidar also assisted in the vessel's survey efficiency and mitigated risk when navigating over rocky and shoaling seabed.
