Hydrographic Survey has been focused on accurately mapping the seafloor, river or lake bottom. With the increased use of laser scanners, LiDAR and imaging sonars the interface between land and sea and man-made infrastructure is becoming easier to survey providing a more complete picture. This technology introduces new requirements for terrain modelling and provides new analysis opportunities.
The Engineering Analysis Module™ is an extension of the CARIS BASE Editor™ aimed at the Port and Waterway and Survey Engineering community. In addition to its proven capabilities in dredge support and channel analysis, it now contains the tools to make reference models of vertical and inclined features such as dams and quay walls. This provides an easy and efficient workflow for deformation analysis and maintenance activities.
New features include:
Tools to create theoretical models that have multiple planes
Enhanced gridding algorithms that model vertical, inclined and horizontal terrains
Analysis capabilities to difference the survey data and the theoretical model
The Engineering Analysis Module is a component of the Ping-to-Chart™ solution, allowing users to seamlessly process data from the sonar ping through to products, with sophisticated analysis capabilities.
