Shallow Survey 2018, St John's, NL, Canada
Shallow Survey 2018 will cover a wide swath of approaches to shallow water hydrography – from multibeam, to swath (or swathe), to LiDAR, to satellites; AUV’s, ASV’s, UAV’s, and advanced data processing, fusion and visualization techniques - highlighting both the practical developments in these technologies, as well as advancements in our understanding of the seabed gained as a result. There can be little question that the technologies being developed to address current and future hydrographic requirements are enabling the hydrographic community to ask questions and set standards that were previously not practical to even consider.
“Hydrography is the branch of applied sciences which deals with the measurement and description of the physical features of oceans, seas, coastal areas, lakes and rivers, as well as with the prediction of their change over time, for the primary purpose of safety of navigation and in support of all other marine activities, including economic development, security and defence, scientific research, and environmental protection.” International Hydrographic Organization
QPS will be attending and in addition, to coincide with Shallow Survey 2018, but open to all, QPS invites you to attend the workshop:
Creating High Resolution Video and Interactive Presentations from Marine Geo-Spatial Data Using QPS Fledermaus
on Thursday, 4th October 2018 from 10:00am-12:30pm in St. John's, Newfoundland.
Modern surveys produce a deluge of data, but complex raw data sets can be difficult to understand and interpret. Having efficient tools and techniques to present survey data to your audience are critical for conveying ideas and outcomes effectively. In this workshop participants will learn how to use the latest developments of QPS Fledermaus to create compelling communications experiences from a full range of marine survey data types including multibeam, bathymetry, backscatter and watercolumn data, as well as LiDAR, sidescan, imagery and ESRI mapping services.
Focus will be placed on using realistic survey scenarios that require the user to move quickly from acquisition to data presentation. Danny Neville, Fledermaus Product Manager, will showcase new and improved Fledermaus functionality while demonstrating workflows beginning with raw data and culminating in interactive 3D presentations and the output of high definition video.
The cost of the workshop is free, but space is limited. Participants are encouraged to bring computers and data if interested in actively following along; if needed, temporary evaluation licenses can be arranged in advance, free of charge.
For more information or to register for the workshop please contact Samantha Bruce.
We look forward to meeting you there!
