TerraSond's knowledge and ability to manage new technologies enables us to play a key role in the surveying and mapping industry.
We own and maintain a large suite of complex software and equipment that is necessary for executing accurate land and hydrographic surveying and mapping. The technology includes specialized tools for obtaining measurements and performing calculations on land and water that are essential for creating, editing and analyzing spatial and attribute data.
We support our staff's ability to manage new technologies by providing additional education and training. We also encourage hands-on experience to increase the conceptual understanding of geographic information systems (GIS) and their practical application for our projects.
Hydrographic Data Processing Software
We own enough hydrographic software to field our systems and manage very large projects with multibeam and side scan sonar.
For projects, we use CARIS, the "Gold" standard in software for processing single beam, multibeam and side scan sonar data. This software is the standard in the industry for rigorous traceability and large dataset management.
In addition to purchased software, we have written extensive programs for managing and manipulating large datasets. That software is proprietary and can be modified easily to meet new and unique data challenges.
Our personnel are trained in the latest hydrographic surveying techniques, software programs and systems.
CARIS GIS Professional CARIS GIS Professional software is an effective spatial analysis tool that permits the creation of digital paper charts to IHO standards as well as the management of information for coastal zone mapping and analysis.
CARIS HIPS & SIPS CARIS HIPS and SIPS is a purpose-built processing and production system. CARIS HIPS is used to process large bathymetric datasets, while CARIS SIPS will process side scan sonar imagery and multibeam backscatter data. The CARIS HIPS and SIPS system supports over 40 industry formats and sonar systems, processing data…
CARIS Notebook CARIS Notebook software allows our digital field survey data to be quickly transferred to our cartographers. This helps our staff efficiently update digital products.
