Tekmap Consulting has added a Water Column Viewer to the GTK+ MB-System Interface. The viewer is designed to load the Water Column datagram available in the newer Simrad multibeam formats.
The Water Column Viewer loads available data in a user selected ping-by-ping basis. This provides an alongtrack view of the water column for each available ping.
The Water Column Viewer is still in the early stages of development. Future add-ons can include:
- noise filtering.
- depth and distance annotation.
- interactive zooming.
- more color options.
- feature detection and mapping.
- 3D plotting and visualization.
