Bathymetry is the measurement of depths in rivers, seas, and oceans. This data is collected and used by organizations such as hydrographic offices, ports, land and habitat conservation and management departments, offshore energy companies, and telecommunications firms across various applications, from generating nautical charts to studying coastlines and marine life, to create models that predict sedimentation.
Modern bathymetric data is typically high-resolution and stored in large volumes. Managing such vast amounts of data just became more efficient with the latest release of ArcGIS Bathymetry. This completely redesigned, next-generation product extends ArcGIS Pro by providing a geographic approach for exploring and modeling bathymetric data and metadata.
ArcGIS Bathymetry offers an end-to-end workflow – data is managed and cataloged in a central geodatabase known as the Bathymetric Information System (BIS). This enables you to easily query, identify, visualize, and extract data on-the-fly, and use it in web and mobile applications, eliminating the challenges that come with file-based data management systems that necessitate moving, copying, or duplicating data.
