CARIS Bathy DataBASE 4.2FREMONT, CA: CARIS, a developer of marine mapping software, announces the release of CARIS Bathy DataBASE 4.2, a powerful system for the management and analysis of bathymetric surfaces and point cloud. As a part of CARIS Ping-to-Chart solution, Bathy DataBASE uses Relational Database Management System (RDMS) technology to deliver a robust and scalable solution for the storage and analysis of large volumes of sonar and LiDAR data.  

Bathy DataBASE has the ability to combine both bathymetric and topographic data into a single space for creating a user friendly environment. It has an enhanced 3D subset editor, which is now equipped with a new data structure for storing billions of points and every point can be a completely independent in the 3D space to actually model 3D solids and objects with ease and flexibility.

The most differentiating feature of the Bathy DataBASE 4.2 is its 3D viewer, which allows users to visualize data with raster graphics and vector features at various gridded resolution. Supported by Oracle 12C, the surface data stored in the Bathy DataBASE can be further manipulated, analyzed and complied using CARIS tools to create bathymetric and cartographic products like smoothed contours, depth areas, and selected soundings for use in chart production. By adding new Engineering Analysis Module to Bathy DataBASE, creation of theoretical models of the seafloor for dredging and other engineering options for hydrographic surveys becomes easier and accurate.
