Robust metadata model can be extended with user-defined attribution, like operator names, refined feature types and much, much more.
Use K-means clustering algorithms to classify imagery data. Colour mosaic images by class.
Visualize imagery corrections on-the-fly in an intuitive waterfall display.
Correct imagery data for the effects of changing topology, water column effects, beam patterns, and more.
Review and correct all sensor data including Gyro, Roll, cable out, layback, and many more. Integrated editors allow for easy data correlation.
Easy to use tools to create contact objects directly from the side scan imagery. View these objects in the 2D map window to correlate with published chart features.
Supports over 40 industry standard formats including; Atlas, CMAX, Coda, EdgeTech, Elac, Furuno, GeoAcoustics, GSF, Hypack, LADS, MarineSonics, Navitronics, Qmips, Scripps, SDF, Seabeam, Seafalcon, SEGY, SHOALS, Simrad, Spawar, Swathplus, UNB, Winfrog, and XTF.
Flexible import architecture allows HIPS and SIPS to easily support new formats.
Display your survey data with other published data formats from electronic charts to aerial photography.
Support for many sonar configurations: hull mounted Side Scan, towed Side Scan, ROV/AUV, and many more.
Create high-resolution mosaic images from raw Side Scan imagery with the multithreaded SIPS engine, and store in the highly scalable CSAR format. Tools to control overlap areas, adjust brightness and contrast, and blending between lines.
Create paper plots using the Plot Composer application (available from the HIPS and SIPS download website). Include multiple map views, add markup and plot objects like scale bars, North arrows and more. Print directly to paper, or export to TIFF or Geospatial PDF.
