Teledyne CARIS™ has released HIPS and SIPS™ 11.0. adding several improvements to make it easier for users to start new projects and process data.
HIPS and SIPS now supports Drag and Drop for raw sensor files, allowing raw data to be automatically processed and georeferenced for the creation of a gridded surface.
The new Georeference Bathymetry function initiates Sound Velocity Correction (SVC), Load Tide, Apply Tide, Merge and Compute Total Propagated Uncertainty (TPU). The same algorithms are still applied but are now combined into a single process to create a more streamlined user experience requiring less interactions, and eliminating the need to join Sound Velocity Profiles into a single file.
Interface changes in HIPS and SIPS 11.0 improve data interaction and provide a consistent user experience across the CARIS™ product line with enhanced filtering, grouping and display set-up properties.
Another new capability is having Dynamic or Static layers for tracklines. Allowing users to create a rule-based layer using any of the trackline attributes.
