Eye4Software B.V. has released the latest version of their professional hydrographic survey package, Hydromagic version 7.0.
The main purpose of this software is to map the bottom of rivers, reservoirs, frac pits, ponds and oceans in 3D. This is done using a connected RTK receiver together with a hydrographic echosounder.
Once all raw position, motion and single beam (dual frequency) echosounder data has been collected during the survey, this data is corrected and synchronized, and finally a sounding file is generated.
Using various post processing options, the sounding data can be used to generate bathymetric maps, depth contours, XYZ data to export to other processing software, (dredging) volume reports and more.
According to the company, the single beam processing unit has been equipped with a lot of new features, including automatic data cleansing using mean and median filters, and the software can now correct your sounding data for heave, roll and pitch motions when an IMU unit is used.
Prior to this version, the software was only available as a 32 bit version. Since most users these days are installed with a 64 bit operating system, Eye4Software now offers a 64 bit version of the software as well, allowing the software to take full advantage of the system memory.
