Perspective Map™   Multi-layer Map-based Display for Data Fusion


Wellington, New Zealand Los Angeles, California Paris Lake Champlain, Vermont Sydney, AUS Offshore South Africa Narragansett

Triton Perspective Map is the foundation of the completely new Triton Perspective product line and forms the GIS-based map environment for the Perspective -MB, -SS, & -SB product packages. Perspective Map integrates the BathyOne™, MosaicOne™, SB-Interpreter™, TargetOne™, and SeaClass™ software modules into a cohesive suite capable of processing, fusing, and displaying bathymetric, sidescan, and seismic data.

Data processing is performed with user-friendly wizards and interactive settings panels. Processing within a GIS environment allows access to the raw data from the processed results. Perspective combines raw and processed data from multiple sensor types within a GIS context with co-registered survey tracklines, satelite or other GeoTiff imagery, electronic navigation charts, seabed classification areas, plus DXF vector and ASCII point files. This cursor-linked data fusion greatly improves the users ability to interpret objects or artifacts seen in the data, allowing for improved data validation and increased confidence in the results.

As a stand-alone data processing package, Perspective meets the needs of internationally-recognized agencies regulating survey quality and deliverables including IHO Standards & Publications, NOAA and NOS survey specifications and deliverables, and CHS standards for hydrogrpahic surveys. Results from Triton Perspective can be output in standard formats for further processing and/or interpretation in third-party applications.

Presented below are some of the tools available in
Perspective Map™:

Navigation Processing

For each survey data file loaded into Perspective, the navigation is automatically extracted from the raw data and copied into cache files for processing without affecting the original raw data file. Navigation processing options include selecting the source for navigation and heading data, applying a speed filter, and smoothing the navigation using a running average. Processing survey data navigation can be done on a single file at a time or all files listed under each data type. For files with poor navigation, repeat smoothing can be performed.

Profile Tool

The profile tool in Perspective works on bathymetry grids, DTM and CUBE quality control layers (density, standard deviation, uncertainty, number of hypotheses, & IHO compliance), as well as on sidescan mosaics. The profile tool is used by drawing a strait or multi-segment line in the map display. All grid files and mosaics that intersect the drawn line will be included in the profile display. It is also possible to generate a profile of a selected navigation line. Profiles can be exported from the profile display as DXF or as CSV files.

Multple Map Diplay

For comparing overlapping layers, Perspective has the ability to launch separate windows for each grid or mosaic layer loaded in the project. This is a great tool for change detection from repeat surveys, comparing bathymetry QC layers with gridded results for data validation, comparing the same location with multiple data types for geohazard analysis or oil/gas exploration, measuring the offset between objects seen in overlapping sidescan lines ran in opposite directions, etc. Options for syncing the scale and extents of the multiple windows with the main map display allow users to zoom and pan in all windows simultaneously.

Custom Cursor

The information display in Perspective always shows the coordinate of the cursor position in the map view in both Latitude-Longitude and the local UTM zone for that location using the WGS84 datum. For users that work in other projections or datums, Perspective has the ability to display the current cursor position in the Custom Cursor display in any projection. Perspective uses the 'Proj4' projection libraries with an online database of common projections, and has with the ability for manual entry of projection and datum details.

Database Query (optional)

Upon request Perspective can come with a database query option for managing large datasets. Data can be automatically loaded and unloaded based on the map extent and a user-defined date range. This is a great tool for managing daily surveys of the same location for port security, or for managing high-resolution surveys that cover large areas.
