Easily Share and Utilize Hydrographic Survey Data Online

While marine engineering is a centuries-old industry, we’ve only been able to clearly see what lies beneath the water’s surface in the past few decades. The development of sonar technology has made 3D marine surveys with sonar scanning common for checking seabed conditions or underwater structures.

A common problem in the industry is, how to share and utilize the hydrographic / bathymetric survey data gathered. In GISGRO, you can simply do it online. Anywhere, anytime, without special software or skills to use them.

For a quick view, check the video. Or test GISGRO yourself by getting demo account credentials to your e-mail. If you want to use your own data, start a 14-day free trial. To discuss more, book a 20-minute online presentation with GISGRO specialist.

From 2D Data to 3D, Is It as Easy as It Seems?

hydrographic 3d data

The challenge is that point cloud data sets are huge files without an effective way to store and share the data. It lies somewhere on hard drives or in cloud services and can only be opened with specific 3D mapping software. Too often, underwater survey companies collect the data in 3D, but can only further utilize it in 2D, leaving much of the information unused.

Because the volume of 3D data is growing exponentially in all industries, we developed GISGRO to enable its easy and efficient use. For a hydrographer, GISGRO offers an easy way to visualize the topography of the seabed and check exact coordinates of interesting observations or where in the area the desired target depth is achieved. For a civil engineer, GISGRO offers a guided workflow for underwater inspections and numerous tools to analyze the 3D data. Best of all, delivery to the customer is online and easy!

Easily store, share and actually use the valuable marine survey data you collect.
