ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry reduces the complexity of working with bathymetric data. It is focused around four main technical functional areas.
A typical workflow includes Register Explore Compose and Share bathymetric data.
Registration of Bathymetric Data
- Optimized storage of large datasets by creating an index to the data
- Native format of bathymetric data is left intact; data is not duplicated because it is not imported into a geodatabase.
- Standardized metadata is automatically captured in a centralized and scalable geodatabase
- Additional metadata is extendable and configurable based upon your needs
ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry leverages the advantages of centralized metadata with the optimization of file based storage.
Explore Your Entire Data Datalog
- Interactively filter through your entire bathymetric data holdings in real-time
- Filter dynamically by simple attribute, metadata, and spatial selections
- Preview datasets for quality control and coverage check
- Edit metadata on the fly and in real-time
- Navigate using a dynamically generated User Interface based on user-configured metadata
Compose Seamless Surfaces in Real-Time
- Create and save rule-based models to generate seamless surfaces from the source data
- Use multi-resolution, variable spatial referencing and temporal
- Access the source data and build composition surfaces without duplicating any data
- Update previously created surfaces when new data becomes available without any extra overhead
- Publish seamless bathymetric surfaces to the Cloud using the ArcGIS system
- Use the Geoprocessing framework to gain value from your bathymetric data
- Model the data into hillshades, slope surfaces, contours, profiles, volume calculations, and more.
- Integrate with complementary technologies
- Use the data for a variety of purposes such as Ports, Ocean Science, Maritime Defense, Hydrography, and Offshore Energy.
