CTI SonarWiz Update
Marine Technology Reporter
ChesapeakeTechnology announced an advancement to its SonarWiz software with the addition of post-processing for multi-beam echo sounder and interferometric bathymetry systems. SonarWiz now offers data processing for both multi-beam and interferometric bathymetric systems with present support for processing bathymetry file types of ALL, HSX, JSF, R2S, RDF, S7K, SXI, and XTF. SonarWiz is the software that streamlined the processing of sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profiler and magnetometer data and now with the new bathymetric processing capability, brings together the data from these different geophysical sensors in one unified workspace. SonarWiz Bathy reads the native data formats directly and gives the user all the tools required to view and edit the bathymetric data to produce high resolution maps and reports. By integrating the processed bathymetry data with sidescan sonar data, stunning 3D sidescan sonar mosaics can be generated giving a whole new visual dimension to seafloor data.
