Canadian Hydro 2018 Conference
Canadian Hydrographic Association and the Association of Canada Lands Surveyors are excited to plan another combined conference this year. We welcome you to accompany us at the Victoria Conference Center from March 26 – 29, 2018.
QPS will be exhibiting at booth #403 during the conference and also hosting a workshop on Monday, 26 March from 08.30-12.00.
In this collaborative workshop, QPS and eTrac will provide an introduction to the QPS hydrographic data acquisition and processing workflows, and the methods in which eTrac is using the software to maximize efficiency and quality control as part of a NOAA project. Participants will learn how eTrac has attained value through the adoption of the QINSy-to-Qimera workflow by way of time savings benefits, processing and real-time QA/QC. The numerous feature investigations specific to the project will allow for the showcasing of the new feature management workflow released in Qimera v1.6, and the Qimera tools now available to users to generate S-57 files. The workshop will be composed primarily of QPS software demos, with eTrac’s highly-skilled personnel on-hand to provide field perspective and observations. Also demonstrated will be Qimera Live as a tool for just-in-time data processing, and processing water column data to determine the least depths of wrecks.
On Thursday 29th March QPS presentations will be offered;
At 08.00 QPS Nautical Charting Workflow: “Walking a ping from the surveyor all the way to the pilot”
At 08.30 eTrac’s Evaluation of Qimera: “Accomplishing the NOAA Workflow”
