SonarWiz 7 Office Post-Processing Suite

Product Name:SonarWiz 7 Office Post-Processing Suite
Product Description:SonarWiz Office Suite 7 is your all-in-one solution for acquiring and/or processing sidescan, sub-bottom, bathymetry and magnetometry data. Modules are sold separately or as a complete suite - only pay for the software that you will use. The industry’s leading seafloor mapping software allows surveyors to: Detect small targets via improved across track resolution. Identify differences between old and new surveys through the SonarWiz transparency, swipe, or line shift tools. Preserve the full fidelity of sonar data across multiple formats e.g. XTF, Edgetech JSF or Kongsberg-GeoAcoustics GCF. Simplify mission execution through the use of a single, easy-to-learn mapping solution. Create superior contact reports thanks to improved editing features. Easily export data to a variety of formats including PDF, OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, and HTML. Optimize time on the water through the use of sophisticated planning tools. Reduce costs by leveraging real-time data acquisition to confirm quality and coverage prior to leaving coverage area. Generate state of the art mosaics, contact, and waterfall imagery with high resolution 64-bit displays.
Year of initial introduction:1995
Year of last update:2017
Modules:SonarWiz 7 Office Post-Processing Suite includes sidescan, sub-bottom, bathymetry, magnetometry and now single beam.
