ChesapeakeTechnology Inc. (CTI), a company in real-time acquisition and GIS based processing software for seafloor mapping, announced an advance to its flagship software SonarWiz with the addition of post-processing for multi-beam echo sounder and interferometric bathymetry systems.

SonarWiz now offers data processing for both multi-beam and interferometric bathymetric systems with present support for processing bathymetry file types of ALL, HSX, JSF, R2S, RDF, S7K, SXI, and XTF. SonarWiz is the software that streamlined the processing of sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profiler and magnetometer data and now with the new bathymetric processing capability, brings together the data from these different geophysical sensors in one unified workspace. SonarWiz Bathy reads the native data formats directly and gives the user all the tools required to view and edit the bathymetric data to produce high resolution maps and reports. By integrating the processed bathymetry data with sidescan sonar data, stunning 3D sidescan sonar mosaics can be generated giving a whole new visual dimension to seafloor data. SonarWiz Bathy will be a great advantage to the data processor and analyst, simplifying the processing tasks, saving time and money.

CTI has been offering custom software and hardware solutions to the marine geophysical and seafloor mapping industry for over 20 years. Through its developments in marine surveying technology and solutions, CTI has become the standard for navies, government agencies, survey companies and universities around the world.
