Service + Software for Seafloor Mapping
Makai Ocean Engineering contracted OIC to provide data acquisition and processing for a proposed pipeline route that would run from the shore installation to approximately 1200 meters depth, several miles offshore. In March of 2007, OIC executed a hull-mounted multibeam survey (using the Reson 8111 multibeam echo sounder) and a deep-tow sidescan, high-resolution bathymetric survey. The multibeam survey produced a map of the area offshore of Curaçao at five meters (or better) resolution, while the C3D deep-tow system was flown to depths of over 1,000 meters to produce a high-resolution corridor map for the detailed pipe route. OIC conducted data acquisition using our proprietary GeoDAS software; data was processed via OIC’s proprietary software CleanSweep.
