Eye4Software Hydromagic is a professional hydrographic survey package, which can be used to map depth areas using an echosounder.
The software is very affordable and the learning curve is very short. You can start creating your first sounding within a single day !
Use the software to import, export, download, view and edit maps, display your position, calculate volumes and to record soundings.
The software will work with almost any GPS/RTK receiver and echosounder, and can be used on any desktop, laptop or netbook computer running MS Windows.
Some application examples:
|Realtime position display and tracking on S57/S63 ENCs.||Use the software with GeoTIFF maps.||Generate regularly spaced data (matrix) from your sounding.||Generate depth contours.|
|Use theoretical DTM's for volume calculation||Export cross-sections.||Profile editor / channel design.||Sounding editor.|
The software can communicate with almost any GPS or RTK receiver to retrieve your current position and show it on one of the supported raster or vectormaps. When a RTK receiver with an active correction signal is used, the software will be able to calculate the current tide level in real time.
Hydromagic offers support for a wide range of both cheap echosounder or fishfinders, or professional (dual frequency) hydrographic echosounders. The software supports standard NMEA0183 as well as proprietary echosounder formats (Odom, ODEC, PMC, DESO, etc) by the use of device drivers or plugins.
Besides GPS and echosounder, also other hardware, such as a tide receiver, magnetometer, motion or tilt sensor, heading sensor (compass) or an AIS receiver can be connected. for a full list of supported echosounders and other hardware click here.
When the required hardware is not listed, please contact support. Because the use of plugins, we can also extend the software for the use of other hardware, for instance hardware required to measure the position of dredging equipment, magnetometers or more.
To display a part of the globe on a display, a map projection is needed to prevent distortion of the map data. The software is shipped with a database containing over 5000 predefined local and global map datums and grids. You can also delete, modify and add new definitions in case the map grid or map datum you are using is not in the database.
Overlay data, such as comments, waypoints, matrix and sounding data can be imported from or exported to different file formats. File formats supported include ASCII XYZ, ESRI Shape, Google Earth KML/KMZ, ARC/INFO ASCII, Microstation DGN and AutoCAD DXF Files.
Some other tools and features the software offers:
The software supports a wide variaty of both vector and raster formats that can be used as background map for your survey, including:
