Exposure to New Equipments

Through demonstrations and technical support of projects in data acquisition, CIDCO provides the opportunity for its business partners to enter new markets by testing and understanding the use of cutting-edge technology.

Boat Setup

CIDCO performs the installation and calibrations of mapping equipments (echo sounders, inertial navigation units) on board various ships.

Survey Logistics

CIDCO is developing and testing tools and methods to make preliminary survey plans and to estimate the time needed and the survey costs based on the data collection context.

Processing and Spatial Analysis

CIDCO possesses the expertise in data processing (bathymetry and imagery) acquired from singlebeam, multibeam and interferometric echo sounders. Moreover, it continuously strives to improve the data processing workflow in order to reduce the time required for production of marine geomatics products.
