Online acquisition is carried out using NaviPac surface and underwater positioning together with NaviScan sonar integration and recording. The EIVA SBD data format is read directly into HIPS and SIPS. This allows for processing of bathymetry, seafloor imagery and water column data in HIPS and SIPS and processing of subsea positioning data through NaviEdit.
HIPS bathymetry, in CARIS HDCS format, can be opened for subsequent processing and pipeline specific tasks in NaviModel. Moreover, NaviModel can connect to Bathy DataBASE using CARIS CSAR format for survey management and creation of bathymetric products, such as contours and sounding features, in industry standard GIS formats.
Existing CARIS users benefit from additional features to the survey setup such as subsea- based data acquisition, pipeline detection and inspection and advanced 3D modelling and analysis.
Existing EIVA users benefit from the ability to process bathymetry, seafloor imagery and water column data, as well as other data sources such as LiDAR. It also allows the creation of sophisticated chart products and GIS data deliverables.
