Fredericton, NB, Canada – October 18, 2012 – CARIS is pleased to announce the release of Bathy DataBASE 4.0, the leading solution for managing and analyzing bathymetry data. Powered by the CSAR engine and backed by proven RDBMS technology, Bathy DataBASE delivers a robust and scalable solution for the storage and analysis of ever-expanding volumes of Sonar and LiDAR data.
Significant enhancements have been made to the latest version of Bathy DataBASE, including the launch of a 64-bit version. A new dataset grouping tool makes the display and analysis of multiple grids and point cloud datasets fast and simple. The surface combine tool has been re-factored to use memory more efficiently, making the process dramatically faster and more scalable. New database connection and query capabilities create quicker and more effective means of working with large databases.
In addition to these enhancements, the latest version of Bathy DataBASE includes access to database operations using the Python scripting language. Through the use of scripting, users can automate portions of the workflow and run batch processes on large numbers of sources in the database.
“More and more organizations are looking for a scalable solution for an increasing volume of data,” said Karen Cove, product manager for Bathy DataBASE. “With the latest version of Bathy DataBASE we’re able to support those demands and keep processing times down. New capabilities like Python scripting and performance improvements on existing tools allow users to create more efficient workflows and execute them in less time.”
The Bathy DataBASE 4.0 release will introduce version control licensing. License strings will be available via the Online Customer Service website but clients can also request the new license files be sent via email. Each license will be unique and will work with Bathy DataBASE 4.0 as well as earlier versions. Those clients without current subscription will not receive a new license string for Bathy DataBASE 4.0 but will continue to be able to use older versions of the software.
