Project description

HydrOffice Grids

General Info


HydrOffice is a research development environment for ocean mapping. It provides a collection of hydro-packages, each of them dealing with a specific issue of the field. The main goal is to speed up both algorithms testing and research-2-operation.

The Grids hydro-package provides means to manage hydrographic surfaces (Caris CSAR SDK 2.1.0 and Open Navigation Surface BAG).

It is currently composed of 3 modules:

  • OcBase is a collection of helper tools (e.g., thread-safe exceptions and logging)

  • Grids abtracts the access to the underline Caris CSAR and ONS BAG formats, both VR and SR.

  • Gappy detects data holidays in gridded data.
