SonarWiz Sidescan

The industry’s leading seafloor mapping software allows surveyors to:

■ Detect small targets via improved across track resolution.
■ Identify differences between old and new surveys through the SonarWiz transparency, swipe, or line shift tools.
■ Preserve the full fidelity of sonar data across multiple formats. For example SonarWiz allows for recording in industry standard XTF or vendor-specific formats such as Edgetech JSF or Kongsberg-GeoAcoustics GCF.
■ Simplify mission execution through the use of a single, easy-to-learn mapping solution.
■ Create superior contact reports thanks to improved editing features. Easily export data to a variety of formats including PDF, OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, and HTML.
■ Optimize time on the water through the use of sophisticated planning tools.
■ Reduce costs by leveraging real-time data acquisition to confirm quality and coverage prior to leaving coverage area.
■ Generate state of the art mosaics, contact, and waterfall imagery with high resolution 64-bit displays.

SONARWIZ FEATURE DETAILS

SURVEY PLANNING
■ Load background maps and charts from a range of formats including DNC, RNC, S57, and GeoTIFF.
■ Automatically plan survey lines parallel to a reference line, within a polygon based on either efficiency or conventional patterns.
■ Generate planned survey maps as a GeoPDF, GeoTIFF, ECW, JPEG or Google Earth.
■ Estimate survey timing.

POST-PROCESSING
■ Preview files with the SNIFF feature.
■ Add and fix navigation data with NavInjectorPro.
■ Leverage advanced signal processing and gain control; take advantage of features such as beam angle correction, de-striping, non-linear per channel TVG, AGC, Band Pass Filtering and Stacking, Contact (target) capture, annotation, and summary reporting via 3D Viewer.
■ Employ flexible layback configurations.
■ Easily printable output.
■ Grid/contour isopach-type shape file / grid generation from selected variables (e.g. altitude + depth).
