Teledyne CARIS Releases a New Version
Of Its Bathymetric Database

September 12, 2017

The new version of Bathy DataBASE 4.4 addresses the important areas of feature generalization and automation of product generation for chart compilation, as well as an increased emphasis on bathymetric LiDAR surveys. It offers point-suppression and smoothing techniques for creating chart-ready vector features from survey data. New LiDAR point cloud editing tools allow simultaneous visual inspection, elimination of outliers and point re-classification.

A collection of new techniques for generalizing bathymetry in chart compilation workflows can be found in BASE Editor, which is part of the BDB suite. Point suppression and smoothing helps reduce the manual work associated with turning survey data into chart-ready vector features. These techniques can be used in isolation or together with other bathymetric feature compilation tools.
