CARIS releases HIPS and SIPS 8.0 water column data supplementation for bathymetry, seafloor imagery & water column data processing.


The much anticipated release of HIPS and SIPS 8.0 includes some significant enhancements, such as the continued implementation of water column data processing allowing the data to be supplemented into the bathymetry, the redesigned calibration tools in Subset Editor and the new HIPS project database allowing for faster open times and multi-user access.

“The major release of HIPS and SIPS 8.0 has many new features that our clients have been eagerly waiting for,” said Burns Foster, product manager for HIPS and SIPS. “The ability to be able to select and import water column data as bathymetric data into existing projects is very exciting as there are plenty of useful applications for this, from scientific endeavours to verifying the least depth on a wreck. Also, the new HIPS database file is the first step in bringing data storage and management in HIPS and SIPS to the next level and we have some big plans for this going forward.”

Supplement bathymetry with water column data

Following the introduction of water column data processing in HIPS and SIPS 7.1.1, the continued development in HIPS and SIPS 8.0 now allows users to supplement the bathymetry in existing projects with water column data. The data can be selected and imported as additional bathymetry and is stored in a CSAR point cloud. Water column data can now be imported as fully corrected bathymetric data and utilized in the same tools and workflows as standard bathymetry.

Redesigned Calibration tools in Subset Editor
The Calibration module has been redesigned for improved usability and workflow. The Calibration tools have been migrated to the latest interface and tools in Subset Editor allowing users to utilize simple and intuitive controls.

New HIPS project database with multi-user access

The new *.hips file for HIPS and SIPS projects is a database that will provide several advantages, including management of multi-user access to the data. The project database also significantly improves the performance of opening a project. Testing on a project containing hundreds of track lines shows open times are dropping from several minutes to only a few seconds.

Established in 1979, CARIS is a leading developer of geospatial software. The CARIS Ping-to-Chart™ product line delivers an integrated software solution for the entire workflow of hydrographic information from the echosounder "ping" through to the production and distribution of the "chart".

Interested persons new to HIPS and SIPS can contact info@caris.com for more information and a quote.
