Description

BATHYMETRY 
SonarWiz Bathymetry contains all the tools you need to calibrate, edit and render your bathymetric data, including support for AUV surveys with post-process navigation and attitude injection tools. SonarWiz has special support for geophysical and exploratory surveying offering 
6 different gridding algorithms, volumetric and difference calculators, grid interpolation, and vector contouring. Export data to more than 
20 supported GIS and CAD formats. 


IMAGE PROCESSING 
SonarWiz processes the acoustic backscatter simultaneously with the bathymetric soundings. This means that you can switch between rendering bathymetry or acoustic backscatter on the fly in any of the editors or displays. SonarWiz utilizes statistical normalization algorithms on the imagery optimized for habitat classification and mosaic generation. The algorithms are designed to work on any system including older uncalibrated sonars, interferometric sidescan systems, even damaged systems. Use the Seabed Characterization Tool to segment your survey before ground truthing. 


VISUALIZATION 
SonarWiz contains interactive 3D visualization tools where bathymetry and acoustic backscatter can be easily combined with sidescan and sub-bottom profile (SBP) data to make impressive visualizations of your survey area. 


LICENSING 
Sidescan and Sub-bottom (SBP) are available standalone. Bathymetry (Bathy) and Magnetometry (Mag) are available as add-ons, or bundled in various configurations. Office Suite includes post-processing for Sidescan, SBP, Bathy and Mag. Field Suite includes acquisition for Sidescan, SBP, Bathy and Mag. Field & Office Suite ("Does It All") includes both post-processing and data acquisition for Sidescan, SBP, Bathy and Mag. Network and Education licenses available.
