HIPS & SIPS


Trust the Most Comprehensive Hydrographic Data Processing System

Backed by over 25 years of excellence, the HIPS and SIPS™ suite of products offers essential capabilities and professional grade tools for hydrographic data processing. Supporting over 40 industry standard data formats, HIPS and SIPS can easily integrate into any workflow. It enables you to simultaneously process multibeam, backscatter, side scan sonar, single beam and lidar data. It incorporates the latest in 3D visualization technology for the purpose of hydrography, oceanography and marine science. As part of the Ping-to-Chart™ workflow, HIPS and SIPS can be easily expanded to meet your wider geospatial needs.




New Features in version 11.0

Here are the top new features in the latest release of HIPS and SIPS

Getting Started in HIPS and SIPS

For users looking for the simplest way to open and process their data, HIPS and SIPS now supports Drag and Drop for raw sensor files. When you drag and drop files onto the application, the raw data is automatically processed, georeferenced, and a gridded surface is created.



One Step Processing

The new Georeference Bathymetry function is a single step which initiates Sound Velocity Correction (SVC), Load Tide, Apply Tide, Merge, and Compute Total Propagated Uncertainty (TPU). The same trusted algorithms are still applied but with the added benefit of being combined into a single process. This creates a more streamlined user experience requiring less interactions, and eliminates the need to concatenate Sound Velocity Profiles into a single file.

Trackline Layers

A new application interface provides a consistent user experience across the CARIS product line when filtering, grouping, and setting up display properties, such as:

  • Selection and draw order are controlled from a single window
  • Layer grouping, with the ability to uniformly change display settings for all layers in a group
  • Improved Properties and Attributes windows

Another new capability is the concept of having Dynamic or Static layers for tracklines. This allows the user to create a rule based layer using any of the trackline attributes. The dynamic trackline layer is a great way to manage your processing workflow, as data can be automatically grouped into layers based on what stage it is at in the process.

Process Designer

Process Designer has several usability updates to make it easier to design and validate a processing workflow. These include applying a modern design which makes it easier and more intuitive to interact with the application and creation of a Process Model.
