Create detailed bathymetric, aquatic, and coastal habitat maps automatically by recording sonar from low-cost, yet powerful Lowrance® or Simrad® sonar devices. See what sonar devices are compatible with BioBase and how to buy.
EcoSound automates the processing of sonar files with sophisticated automated algorithms based on cloud servers. Sonar files are processed automatically upon upload, and high-quality maps and spatial datasets are delivered to your secure online BioBase account within minutes and available for downloading and sharing with partners, stakeholders or customers.
All interactive maps, processed data, and data reports are backed up and archived in an easy to browse dashboard. Data reports are created automatically, are available for sharing and for exporting to a third-party GIS or statistical software.
Verify outputs with trip replay - your maps, sonar log (both traditional broadband and structure channels), and data along your track are synced, making output verification and editing easy.
Our analytical tools allow you to create polygons around an area of interest and generate local statistics for water volume or aquatic vegetation cover.
Semi-automated processing of high-resolution satellite images maps emergent floating, and near the surface aquatic vegetation in wetlands and lakes.
Benthic habitats are classified using the coastal and marine ecological classifications standard.
Exportable Lowrance and Simrad GPS Charts, ESRI Shapefiles, and Automated Summary reports of the Total Area of Each Classification are created automatically.
