HIPS Professional has been updated with enhanced support for Lidar data stored in the LAS format:
SIPS Backscatter now supports R2Sonic systems for beam average and time series processing when logged in Hypack format. When SIPS Backscatter detects multispectral data, SIPS will automatically produce a composite RGB color image. Each color will represent a specific frequency from the source data. This composite color mosaic provides immediate insight into the nature of the seabed.
Data logged from RESON’s mid-to-deep water Hydrosweep system is now fully supported in HIPS and SIPS. This includes bathymetry, backscatter (SIPS engine), and water column imagery.
HIPS Professional supports compressed water column imagery stored in S7K format, providing support for both Hydrosweep and T-Series systems from RESON.
Laser scanner data stored in either the Hypack TOP or RMB record as spherical coordinates are now fully supported in HIPS.
