CARIS is a well known commodity in subsea circles, an international organization leading the development of marine GIS software. CARIS offers a complete Ping-to-Chart solution. CARIS products continue to adapt with the needs of its clients and the advancement of technology including support for Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) data, as well as the exploration of Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) onboard data processing and near real-time product creation.
For more than 35 years, CARIS has been a leading developer of geospatial software designed to cater to the marine GIS community and is built on decades of hydrographic experience. The CARIS Ping-to-Chart solution is designed to deliver an integrated and seamless solution for the complete workflow of hydrographic information from processing the echo-sounder ping to the production and distribution of the chart. This integrated software solution provides our clients with resource optimization and a true operational advantage.
The CARIS Ping-to-Chart product line is designed to deliver an integrated software solution for the entire workflow of hydrographic information from processing the echo-sounder ping to the production and distribution of charts. CARIS software enables the processing and visualization of large bathymetric datasets, geospatial data management, spatial analysis, paper, ENC and military chart production, calculating maritime limits and boundaries based on United Nations guidelines, port and waterway engineering and Web mapping and discovery.
Through liaisons with the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) CARIS has been involved in the development of industry data standards and has worked on various consulting and development projects. CARIS is a member of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and utilizes open standards for geographic data exchange and management including the ISO standards.
