This software covers every aspect needed by coastal states to complete a competent preliminary Desktop Study, requiring no additional external data sources.
(Note: The software handles any format of data used by coastal states to assemble and produce their final submission to the United Nations. Any additional data sources the coastal state has should be included in order to improve the results of the Desktop Study.)
LOTS provides many specific functions to handle all types of bathymetric data sources (from single beam to multibeam) and Morphological Foot of the Continental Slope. Geological and geophysical functions are provided to analyze all types of geophysical data sources and produce Geological Foot of the Continental Slope.
Specialized custom applications taken directly from the CLCS Technical Guidelines will allow for creation of your coastal states:
Create, analyze and produce solutions for any disputes and/or un-resolved Maritime Boundaries.
Many specialized custom applications which will allow for complete Boundary Negotiations with any neighbouring and/or opposing coastal states where the desired outcome is a negotiated treatied boundary settlement.
Manage and produce your Territorial Sea / Contiguous Zone / Exclusive Economic Zone.
Customized tools to allow for complete creation / management and updates of all of your coastal states Maritime Zones.
Comes bundled with over 4 gigabytes of global public domain data sources, allowing any coastal state to begin its Law of the Sea applications (coastlines, roads, rivers, contours, bathymetry, sediment, etc.) right away.
Addresses all aspects of digital mapping software, from editing to printing, and geometric transformations to exports. CARIS LOTS also includes the underlying GIS software applications where CARIS has been a Geographic Information System (GIS) World Leader for the past 25 years.
New Specialized software reads binary seismic SEGY data sources, allowing operators to perform the required interpretations to produce the Bathymetric and the Sediments Thickness ASCII (x,y,z) files.
Customized development tools allow operators to carefully plan where additional data sources need to be collected. Surveys will account for +/- 85 percent of your coastal state's Article 76 Budget, so careful planning is important so unnecessary data is not collected.
Customized tools to allow for complete creation / management and updates of your coastal states Territorial Sea Baseline Model. Includes support for Raster Nautical Charts, support of FREE 15-meter Global-Coverage GeoTIFFs and MrSID (Landsat) Images, rigorous Quality & Assurance Routines etc.
