Presentations/Speakers:

Upcoming trends in Data processing, Kevin Tomanka/OARS

This will be an expanded version of one of the 5-minute "Lightning Talks" from the U.S. Hydro show. It will be an overview of what we are seeing as the prevailing trends in hydrographic software, and showing how EIVA is tailoring the NaviSuite line to meet these needs. The talk will include topics on 3D Dredging, Oceanography, and Big Data applications.

Seamless bathymetry with topography, Harold Orlinsky/HYPACK

Creating a near seamless survey using a Norbit multibeam and Velodyne Lidar in the port of Malta.  Techniques to show the best method for data collection and processing

Cooperative Cleaning – Qimera v1.5, Mo Doucet/QPS

We've talked to clients about their experiences with multi-user workflows in other software applications.  What we've found generally is that existing solutions are overly complex, unstable, unwieldy and fail to bring value to the end client.  The dream of multi-user has yet to materialize.

Qimera Cooperative Cleaning and Production Line Processing address these issues in multi-user workflows by providing a set of simple tools that separate workflows to respect the natural progression of data refinement.  It also leverages the skill sets required of users at various stages of processing, data validation and product generation

Bathy/Topo Lidar Surveys to Monitor the Replenishment of the Elwha River Estuary and Coastline, Carol Lockhart, Ben Hocker/GDS

Brief overview of airborne bathy/topo lidar surveys conducted by Geomatics Data Solutions for the USGS on the Elwha River near Port Angeles, WA.

Dylan Bedortha: SonTek                                        TBD

Andrew Ziegwied: ASV Global                              TBD


Interesting presentations (project photo essay style) are being organized and will be updated on the next meeting reminder notice. Interested in presenting a 10-15 minute topic then please contact mike@seahorsegeomatics.com.
