CARIS RELEASES UPDATES TO BATHYDATABASE
CARIS Bathy DataBASE™ 4.2.
CARIS announced the release of CARIS Bathy DataBASE™ 4.2. As part of the CARIS Ping-to-Chart™ solution, Bathy DataBASE is a system for the management and analysis of bathymetric surfaces and point clouds.
The new version has the first appearance of the enhanced 3D Subset Editor for area based editing. The company said this update provides a more powerful and user friendly environment for interacting with large volumes of point data from multibeam, laser scanner and LiDAR sensors.
The subset editor is now equipped to allow for the simultaneous editing of multiple point clouds. New visualization opportunities have been added, such as custom colouring based on non-elevation data sources and a more flexible use of reference data for context.
Other major enhancements include new tools for working with raster surfaces, which are referenced to vertical and inclined planes through the Engineering Analysis Module (EAM)™. The ability to drape higher resolution imagery (e.g. backscatter) over elevation models in both 2D and 3D has been introduced. There has been a substantial coordinate reference sys-tem modification, which incorporates the imple-mentation of EPSG Geodetic Parameter dataset. Support for Oracle 12c has been enabled, as well as an overall emphasis on server specific perfor-mance including faster server combine processes.
