MosaicOne™   Sidescan Processing and Interpretation Software


Sidescan Processing Waterfall Viewer CAD Object Detection TargetOne

Triton MosaicOne™ is an embedded software module within Perspective and is included in the Perspective-SS product package for the processing and interpretation of sidescan and SAS sonar data. MosaicOne™ was designed for ease of use, versatility, and image quality, and makes the production of high quality geo-registered sidescan mosaics a simple process. This new software employs the latest in software technologies including: multi-core parallel processing, indexed cache files, workflow wizards, XML project files, multi-resolution tiling, and dB-based rendering to deliver advanced capabilities such as the innovative one-button mosaic feature.

MosaicOne™ images are created by simply dragging and dropping raw data files into the Triton Perspective multi-layer map view. On dual and multi-core PCs, high-resolution mosaics are produced in seconds rather than minutes. Innovative processing options such as nadir delete, far range clipping, and single-channel select, coupled with a comprehensive set of navigation processing tools, result in superior quality mosaics. Advanced bottom tracking tools allow for improved position accuracy for objects seen in the waterfall or mosaics, and for the acquired targets. The constrain to polygon, heading filter, and snip line tools allow for easily removing lines turns from survey results.

Presented below are some of the tools available in

Waterfall Viewer

For data interpretation, the waterfall view alsways will offer the highest resolution view into the collected data. Traditionally the problem with waterfall interpretations was the lack of context in the geospatial domain. To overcome this issue, the waterfall viewer in Perspective is cursor locked witgh the map view to link features seen in the waterfall view with the processed mosaic or any other data loaded in Perspective. The waterfall view is also used for launching the bottom tracking and TVG tools. Annotation tools in the waterfall allow objects to be marked or delineated directly in the waterfall and then transferred to the map view as points, features or DXF files.


Objects or features seen in the waterfall view or in the map view can be captured as targets. Captured targets are loaded into TargetOne for measurement and classification. Saved targets are automatically displayed in both the map and waterfall view and can be exported as GeoTiffs, with the measurements and classification information written to an ASCII or PDF report. For automated target detection, the waterfall viewer includes a CAD module which utilizes TargetOne and allows the user to specify targeted object size. Results are automatically measured and displayed in TargetOne for review.


Triton SeaClass is an advanced seabed segmentation/classification module that automatically characterizes bottom types based on statistical properties of mosaiced sidescan or multibeam backscatter data. SeaClass is based on a multi-layer perceptron supervised neural network. Please refer to the SeaClass webpage for more information: SeaClass
