If you are wanting to collect great backscatter data to create mosaics then this poster from Jonathan Beaudoin is a must read. It shows you how to set the sonar up, use SVP data and then process it in FMGT.

Here is the link to the NOAA ENC server powered by ESRI’s Chart Server. You can see the ENCs normally or you can use them with the ESRI Basemaps like the Image one in the second picture. The ENC can be fully inspected too. A bit more info; The NOAA ENC Online viewer is […]
Pearl Habour wrecks surveyed with multibeam, LiDAR and underwater photogrammetry. Coolest thing is making models of wreck artefacts by using 3D printers. The small USV is also pretty impressive – complete with R2Sonic 2020.
I’ve been working on this for a few months now and finally we can talk about it. Qimera should really change the way that multibeam data is processed. No complicated setup, an intuitive interface and unbelievably powerful features and speed. More posts to follow on this!
Look how deep the heavy-lift vessel had to ballast down – 20.5 m! http://www.offshoreenergytoday.com/largest-jack-up-rig-in-the-world-on-a-12-000-miles-journey/ #epicjourney
Teledyne RESON buys Atlas Hydrographics
I’m presenting at the RESON UTS in Hamburg on getting the data right when collecting multibeam and laser data combined. To give you a taster, here’s an image from a survey we conducted at Portland Harbour recently. @RESON_Seabat http://mmt.se/news-media/laser-bathymetry-survey/
Shallow Survey, the high resolution seabed mapping conference is back in Plymouth in September 2015. To go with the conference is the Common Dataset. Find out more here http://www.shallowsurvey2015.org/default.asp?page=commondataset
An excellent, if a little sweaty palms, story of how an AUV was lost and then found. It is bad enough to lose a sidescan or ROTV (we did 2 years ago but luckily it was washed up on a beach) but an AUV is even more expensive!
