QINSy TIN model retrieval from ESRI ArcGIS database
Recently QPS was contracted by RWS to extend QINSy with an option which allows easy visualization and quantification of the difference between the design depth and the actual depth of a waterway. The design depth is stored as a digital terrain model in a geographic information system (ESRI ArcGIS) and the actual depth is determined using measurement sensors mounted on a survey vessel. This functionality will become part of the next QINSy release which is scheduled for release in January of 2013. As part of the deliverables QPS made a short video clip showing how the new functionality can be used. This movie may be found here.
