Upcoming Fledermaus Tools and Functionality Featured at AGU

Latest in Mid-Water Visualization and ESRI Integration Demonstrated. IVS 3D seeks insights into user workflows at AGU and gains feedback into Fledermaus' mid-water visualization tools and ESRI Arc integration.

Portsmouth, NH, January 30, 2010 --(PR.com)-- For the 10th consecutive year, IVS 3D exhibited at the annual AGU meeting in San Francisco, CA from December 14-18. With over 16,000 geophysicists from around the world, the meeting was a successful collaboration of the latest issues and technology surrounding Earth and space sciences.

At the IVS 3D booth, many attendees saw demonstrations of Fledermaus Version 7 and were excited to learn about the latest integrations with ESRI. As data sets were discussed and shared, many realized the improved workflow with the ESRI Arc integration in eliminating the need to export or import between the two platforms. Particular interest and discussions surrounded the Fledermaus mid-water visualization tools soon to be released. The majority of attendees were interested in plume visualization for various systems and data set formats.

Elsewhere in presentations and posters, Fledermaus images and models were evident in numerous displays.

Moe Doucet, Chief Systems Architect for IVS 3D, reflected on the response and feedback from the meeting. “This type of direct interaction with our users is crucial in our development process. We came away with insights into workflow challenges that will help our team to continue to develop innovative solutions within the Fledermaus software suites. The analysis of plumes is just one example of the emerging uses for the mid-water tools.”

Interactive Visualization Systems' (IVS3D) was founded in 1995 as the developer of the Fledermaus 3D visualization and analysis software suite. Government, commercial and academic clients in all areas of ocean mapping use the software internationally.

The Fledermaus software stands apart in providing scientists and engineers with interactive and intuitive tools for processing, quality control and analysis of multibeam sonar and related data. Its use significantly improves efficiencies in areas such as; nautical charting, geologic interpretation, the assessment of seabed habitats, planning routes for pipelines and cables, and the identification of geohazards during engineering development.

The company has offices in Canada, USA, and the UK, and a worldwide distribution network.
