FREDERICTON, Canada, Aug 10, 2017 – Teledyne CARIS has announced the release of Bathy DataBASE (BDB) 4.4.

A collection of new techniques for generalizing bathymetry in chart compilation workflows can be found in BASE Editor, which is part of the BDB suite. Point suppression and smoothing techniques help reduce the manual work associated with turning survey data into chart ready vector features. These techniques can be used in isolation or together with other bathymetric feature compilation tools to produce the best results possible.

New Lidar point cloud editing tools allow for visual inspection, elimination of outliers, and point re-classification to be performed at the same time; with one tool.

BDB 4.4 also offers improved automation for S-102 and bENC overlays through the inclusion of new sample process models. This will reduce the time required to get an automated production line up and running.
