Save Time and Money from Port Maintenance by Analyzing 3D Data Yourself!

3D data has been an important part of safety in ports for a long time. Asset integrity and safe clearance depths are checked with regular 3D surveys, analyzing seabed erosion and accumulation, and possible damages on the structures, for example. Often, the analysis is done by a consultant or an engineering company because 3D data is challenging even to open without the right software and knowhow. A cloud platform GISGRO is designed to tackle those challenges and to allow you to efficiently utilize the 3D data yourself. In this blog, you find three examples of utilizing 3D data in port’s asset management with easy online tools.


1 Inspect under keel clearance

Echosounder survey for port’s sea areas provides 3D data, which is visualized commonly with color maps. Previously, the output of the survey might have been only a PDF of depth charts, for example. In GISGRO, in addition to depth charts (which you can download easily yourself), you can also examine target depths or add soundings automatically to the survey data. See the video below to find out how the bathymetric tools work!

 


2 Analyze the damages on structures

Damages on structures may occur due to a collision by a vessel or weathering by environmental stressors, like tides or ice. In GISGRO, it is easy to verify the exact location, and the extent of a damage. Use cross section or wall analysis tools to see how deep the damage is or check the dimensions with measurement tools.


3 Calculate volumes for dredging

Ports commonly use hydrographic survey data when planning dredging operations to ensure the safe clearance depths in the seaways. Calculating the needed volumes to be dredged has been a laborious task, and very often done by consultants. In GISGRO, you can calculate the volume of sediment to be removed with only few clicks. See the video below to learn how.
