SonarWiz Streamlines Survey Process

SonarWiz streamlines the survey process and simplifies the number of software programs you need to learn. It operates with almost all sonar manufacturers, so you won’t need to re-familiarize yourself with different software each time you need to use different equipment. SonarWiz interfaces with all brands of commercially available sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profilers, magnetometers, echosounders and bathymetic interferometers.

  • We love SW, couldn’t do without it!Mark Borrelli, Ph.D., Director, Seafloor Mapping Program Center for Coastal Studies, Provincetown, MA
  • Previously I’ve processed magnetometer data in Hypack and I must say I like what you’ve done. The anomaly picks are quick to make and the contour plotting really helps to visualize the data. The process was quick and efficient, perfect for running after each day of survey. I think this will really benefit the SCIF team.Doug Bowlus, Santa Cruz Island Foundation
  • Your customer support has been exceptional… your staff has played a significant role in efforts to complete these projects. We appreciate all of your assistance and look forward to your continued tradition of excellent post-processing productsNate Novak, Geospatial Technologies Manager, Orca Maritime
  • SonarWiz 7 provides a fantastic teaching tool that is robust, intuitive and provides a one-stop shop from acquisition to mosaic; enabling students to experience a full-cycle survey project in their first 6 months of studyDr. Tim Scott, Lecturer in Ocean Exploration, Plymouth University UK

View and analyze Sidescan data in real time with the industry’s most complete seafloor mapping solution. Enjoy SonarWiz’s easy-to-use survey management tools, reliable data acquisition, powerful post-processing, and flexible reporting options.

Sidescan Data Sheet

Explore sediment layers in-depth with SonarWiz for Sub-Bottom Profilers with real-time data acquisition and post-processing modules. It also includes navigation, fathometer and magnetometer inputs so you get a broad perspective of a survey area.

SBP Data Sheet

Collecting and processing bathymetry data is a breeze with the SonarWiz workflow and toolset. Produce near seamless amplitude mosaics right off the boat using helm display, plan view, coverage map and directional indicators, as well as automatic, whole survey gain optimization.

Bathy Data Sheet

Help dive teams and recovery personnel locate underwater artifacts, treasures and pipelines you seek to find, map, or recover with SonarWiz. Mag data for ferrous-object detection, co-recorded with sidescan or sub-bottom data, provides a valuable new layer of information.

“It is an excellent product to process Side Scan Sonar and SBP data. I am in the business since 1982 and from the very first time I used the program I decided to buy it (we rented it the first time) without any hesitation.

SonarWiz is an excellent product and the support is even better. Your support is more than perfect. Congratulations.”
