The use of a boat for a bathymetric survey can be complicated, especially for hard to reach rivers and lakes. The use of USV is not feasible in every situation either.

An alternative is to fly a drone (UAV) to carry the echo sounder.

As part of this free webinar, attendees will learn and have the opportunity to:

  • Bathymetry with a drone – why? A drone is compact and easy to transport and deploy. Drones also have a high precision of following planned survey lines and can be used in any place where there is at least a small area for take-off and landing near the surveyed water surface;
  • Benefits and drawbacks of using echosounder with a drone;
  • Demonstration of all components of the bathymetric UAV system;
  • Bathymetric survey mission planning and simulation;
  • Data processing using Eye4Software Hydromagic;
  • Get access to Data sets acquired with UAV bathymetric system.
