BathyOne™   Bathymetry Processing and Interpretation Software


CUBE Processing Backscatter Processing 3D Area Editor Swath Editor

Triton BathyOne™ is an embedded software module within Perspective™ and is included in the Perspective-MB product package for the processing and interpretation of multibeam, single-beam, and interferometric sonar data. BathyOne™ processes all bathymetric survey data including: sound velocity, tides, sensor offsets, squat, and vessel motion data, and creates accurate bathymetric maps and images, gridded XYZ data sets, GSF files, QC layers for data validation and IHO compliance, and other information required for the production of high-resolution bathymetric models in hydrographic, geophysical, and military applications.

BathyOne™ is very easy to use and requires only simple operator inputs to drive the underlying computations. This level of automation makes it well suited for applications where a detailed examination of the seabed is the primary requirement. When using bathymetry to locate mines, track pipelines, study marine geomorphology, and for other applications where a high-resolution model of the seabed is required, BathyOne's automation tools eliminate much of the labor-intensive, manual effort that is common in more classical processing applications. Manual and statistical cleaning tools are included in BathyOne™ for removing sonar noise, identifying 'designated' soundings, and for interpretation of objects seen in the gridded results or in auxilary data loaded into Perspective.

Presented below are some of the tools available in

A-B Change Detection

The A-B tool allows the user to subtract a bathymetry DTM or CUBE grid from any overlapping grid layer loaded in Perspective. This tool is commonly used for repeat surveys of ports and harbors to rapidly identify objects that were not present in the previous survey. Limits can be set to constrain the size of the objects to be detected, plus apply a static tide offset to remove the tidal difference from the results. Other applications for this tool include monitoring sediment accumulation in reservoirs, and monitoring the migration of sand bars in rivers.

2D Swath Editor

Triton's 2D swath editor is available as a stand alone application or embedded within Perspective, and is used to change beam flags for the displayed soundings. Beams can be flagged as good, bad, or as designated so their depth be used as the chosen depth value for the grid cell it is included in. Within Perspective, the Swath Editor is linked to the map view for enhanced interpretation of noise seen in the gridded results. The Swath Editor includes three 2D views of the ping data: the typical across track view, an along track view, and a top view colored by depth.

3D PFM Area Editor

The 3D PFM Editor is an area based editor primarily used for changing sounding beam flags. Launched by drawing a box in the Perspective map view, the 3D editor can be used to manually edit beam flags or to apply a statistical filter for automated data cleaning. In addition to data cleaning, the 3D editor is a great tool for data interpretation, allowing a 3D view of the processed sounding data for any object seen in the gridded results or in any auxiliary data loaded in Perspective.


Geocoder is available with Perspective and works on some data types for processing backscatter and snippet data. Processed amplitude data can be exported from Geocoder as GeoTiff or XYA files for import into Perspective.
