Hydrographic Survey

Hydrographic Surveying provides a detailed underwater inspection of the sea floor and structures. This is done with a 3D sonar system to capture point cloud datasets in conjunction with high-resolution 2D imagery.

When paired with terrestrial 3D laser scanned data, Veris can deploy underwater 3D sonar to provide a complete three dimensional as-built model of the structure both above and below the water line.

To capture high resolution point cloud data of the sea floor, Veris deploys an echo sounder incorporating multiple beams. This process is known as Multibeam Bathymetry. Deployed from a vessel, such as the Veris boat, the multibeam echo sounder can collect thousands of data points per second across a wide swath; the system also employs roll and pitch stabilisation – resulting in fast and accurate data capture of the sea floor.

In small shallow waters, where point density is not a requirement, Veris can deploy a more cost-effective, high accuracy single beam unit. 

Veris can offer a tailor-made solution to ensure your assets remain safe, operational and efficient. These results can be accessed on PC, tablet and other mobile devices, to provide you with a flexible and visual presentation of results.
