Using the Apache Unmanned Survey Vessel

Techniques in Bathymetric Survey
This paper explores the various features of the Apache USV series for efficient seafloor-level mapping. The CHCNAV hydrographic survey software is used for data recording and analysis. It provides results in the form of 3D models of the ground, contours and depth. (This story is brought to you by CHCNAV) Bathymetry is the study and mapping of the seabed or lake bed. It consists of obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean or lakes and is equivalent to the mapping of the Earth’s topography. In general, only limited information is known about the seabed and lake beds. Existing maps... (read more)

7 Questions about Hydrography and Its Relevance for Geomatics

The Perfect Combination of Science and Technology Applied to the Sea
According to NOAA (The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), hydrography is the science that measures and describes the physical features of the navigable portion of the Earth's surface and adjoining coastal areas. It can be seen as an application area within the geospatial engineering discipline. We asked 7 questions to Laurent Kerléguer, the new director general of the French Hydrographic Office (Shom), to learn more about the world of hydrography. Chief weapons engineer Laurent Kerléguer was appointed director-general of Shom, the French hydrographic office, in July 2019. In this interview, GIM International asks him about the latest developments regarding the... (read more)
