ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry lets scientific, government and commercial organizations simplify and unify bathymetric data management making it easier to support common bathymetric tasks. This "produce once, use many" capability makes it easy to serve and use your data for a variety of needs. . You can create a bathymetric information system to store, access and use the data to create models for chart production, offshore geological analysis, pipeline planning, tsunami modeling, environmental and fisheries management, oil platform siting studies, dredging operations and more, without worrying about how the data is stored and managed. When combined with other extraction capabilities and geoprocessing tools, ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry adds intelligence to your bathymetric data allowing you to realize its true value.
With ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry you can
ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry is a commercial enterprise GIS system for the capture, management, visualization and dissemination of bathymetric data, metadata, and derivative products. ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry is able to create a single composite bathymetric surface on the fly to visualize multiple surfaces in one frame of reference. It is also well positioned to help control hydrographic survey footprints to identify data holdings and see gaps quickly. Combined with other extraction capabilities and geoprocessing tools, ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry adds intelligence to bathymetric data and will enable users to realize its true value.
An extension to ArcGIS Desktop, it includes specialized schemas, a metadata engine, functionality for ingestion of data and the ability to query, filter and compose continuous bathymetric surfaces based upon a user specified model. As well, ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry supports workflows, integration with complementary applications, and the ability to generate image and map services within a service-oriented architecture. When implemented into an enterprise GIS environment and integrated with ArcGIS Server, other applications and systems, this is considered a Bathymetric Information System (BIS).
