CARIS software is selected by national mapping and charting agencies, survey companies, port and waterway authorities, oil and gas companies and academic institutions worldwide.
The CARIS Ping-to-Chart solution is designed to deliver an integrated and seamless solution for the entire workflow of hydrographic information from processing the echo-sounder ping to the production and distribution of the chart. This integrated software solution provides clients with resource optimization and a true operational advantage. The CARIS Ping-to-Chart solution includes products that address the need to manage bathymetric data sets containing billions of soundings, to support the development of multiple chart types from a single source and to be able to distribute and interrogate high density bathymetry over the internet. CARIS Onboard is the newest package in the CARIS suite of products. This is a near real-time and autonomous data processing package that has been developed with AUVs and Unmanned Surface Vehicles in mind but is also a force multiplier when used on survey motor launches. CARIS believes that by automating the repeatable steps in the data processing workflow the focus of the professional can be to ensure that top quality data is being collected. CARIS Onboard utilizes a Control Center where processes can be initiated and tracked and data quality assessed.”
