Editor's review

This is hydrographic survey tool.

Eye4Software Hydromagic is hydrographic survey software for Windows. This helps you generate depth maps using a GPS or RTK receiver and an echo-sounder or fish-finder. This tool will help you generate the DTM or the digital terrain model of the bottom of the water body. Depth contour and cross-sections also could be created. This tool incorporates several methods of calculating volumes of basins, ponds, river sections and of lakes. Many of the popular CAD, GIS and nautical chart formats could be handled by this tool. It can read and create outputs in any of these formats desired. These standards include GeoTIFF, Microstation DGN, ARC/INFO, MapInfo MIF/MID, AutoCad DXF files, IHO S57/S63 Electronic Nautical Charts, Google Earth KML/KMZ files and ESRI shapefiles. This tool supports a range of map projections, some 5000 of them in all. NTv2, NADCON and HARN correction grids are supported.

Tide levels in real time can be calculated with a RTK receiver connected to the PC. Using the antenna height, antenna offset and a geoid model, the tide level is calculated and applied to the sounding. What you get are height values relative to the local vertical datum. If local maps are not readily available, you could use the built-in map downloading tool. OpenStreetMap, Google Maps or Bing maps can be used as background maps. The recent version enables collection of data through additional sensors such as a magnetometer, echo-sounder, etc. You could process dual frequency sounding data. With echo-sounders it is possible to collect reflectivity or bottom-loss data. Shorelines data can be added to adjust the data collected by specifying on which side of the shoreline water is. This is a very good tool.

Publisher's description

Eye4Software Hydromagic is hydrographic survey software for Windows. It can be used to generare depth maps using a GPS or RTK receiver and an echosounder or fishfinder.
After recording the sounding, you can generate DTM's (Digital Terrain Models), depth contours, 3D views and cross-sections.
It offers various methods of calculating volumes of bassins, ponds, river sections and lakes.
The software is capable of reading and writing most popular CAD, GIS and nautical chart formats, including: GeoTIFF, Microstation DGN, ARC/INFO, MapInfo MIF/MID, AutoCad DXF files, IHO S57/S63 Electronic Natutical Charts, Google Earth KML/KMZ files and ESRI shapefiles.
A wide range of map projections is build in. More then 5000 map projections are built in. In addition, NTv2, NADCON and HARN correction grids are supported.
The software is also able to calculate tide levels in real time by using a RTK receiver connected to the PC. Using the antenna height, antenna offset and a geoid model, the tide level is calculated and applied to the sounding, resulting in a height values relative to the local vertical datum.
When no map is available for your area, you can use the build-in map downloading tool. Use OpenStreetMap, Google Maps or Bing maps as background maps.
Since this latest version, the software can be used to collect and process dual frequency sounding data, as well as additional sensor data, such as magnetometer data, or advanced data from echosounders, like reflectivity or bottom-loss.
Another big improvement is the use of shorelines. Shorelines can be used to add data collected near the shore, to create islands or to clip your DTM data, by just by specifying on which side of the shoreline the water is.
For the people who want to perform their survey by using planned lines, there is also good news: It is now possible to calculate a DTM or depth contours from multiple soundings or shorelines. Just press a single key to start a new line !
