Voxometer® – new sonar measures voxels not beams

R3 Vox (R2Sonic’s new incarnation in Malta) will hopefully be releasing the Voxometer in Q1 next year. It is a multibeam, but then it isn’t, as it collects voxels (squares) of data at multiple frequencies all at the same time. This will open up new products, acquisition methods and could really be a game changer. […]

2020 back up and blogging

Now that I am the Chief Strategy Officer for XOCEAN I thought I would get back to blogging about any high resolution seabed mapping related news.  So my first post should be about the amazing XO-450 USVs. We are currently up to X09 and should be to X12 by early next year. The only USV […]


Grand Canyon combined multibeam and laser survey

A really great way to share multibeam data

This is a fantastic example of the ESRI web portal. They created this from the Shallow Survey Dataset in Wellington, NZ. As I’m going to be involved in the dataset collection for Shallow Survey 2015 in the UK I think I’ll get ESRI to rename the home page to just be Shallow Survey and we […]
