Finnish Transport Agency Liikennevirasto (FTA), who is responsible for hydrography in Finland, has selected Teledyne CARIS to provide a new bathymetric data management system.
This will be a part of FTA’s infrastructure to manage existing bathymetry, as well as managing and validating incoming bathymetric surveys provided by external contractors, FTA informed.
The Merta project will include the deployment of software, migration of existing bathymetric data sets, and will provide new optimized workflows at FTA.
A 13-year support agreement is also part of the contract. The Caris software will be integrated with existing systems ranging from internal systems for chart production, and external data sources housed in 3rd party GIS databases.
The foundation of this migration is the Caris Bathy DataBASE (BDB) solution.
