|Chesapeake Technology Inc (CTI) is proud to announce support for SEG-Y R2, a new and improved file format standard. Chesapeake worked with EdgeTech, a leading provider of sub-bottom profilers on this project, using their Discover software for the creation of the SEG-Y R2 data files.|
Available in SonarWiz version 7.6.4 and later, SEG-Y R2 is the SEG technical standard committee’s updated data exchange format for sub bottom data. This new format enhances files with additional trace headers, additional field support and extended number of samples and millisecond resolution time tags.
|SonarWiz file import for data processing can handle the new format and fields associated with the updated version. The Playback function and a data extraction tool for the SEG-Y extension data were also updated. This new format enhances the file with additional trace headers, additional field support and extended number of samples and millisecond resolution time tags. |
Over the next few months, SonarWiz will be building new tools and features in the Sub Bottom Module. These will include some automation of reflector tracing, auto import and processing, as well as enhancements to the overall processing workflow. These will be included in the SonarWiz 7.7 release scheduled for October 2020.
