Ocean Business 2009 will see the launch of an innovative software solution designed to greatly simplify the management of marine information. SeaZone's GeoTemporal software allows easy import, processing and presentation of marine data from multiple sources. It then creates standard formatted data so that the information can be used in different Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Previously only highly end specialist software programs had existed and offered limited data interchange capability.
SeaZone GeoTemporal represents a second generation of software allowing the management of a wide diversity of data with greatly improved levels of interoperability. This ensures marine information can be made widely available for further use in GIS and other systems such as 3D modelling. SeaZone GeoTemporal is aimed at marine surveyors, engineers, data managers and consultants and the software will replace ADPC Processing Suite, SeaZone's current data management system.
SeaZone GeoTemporal manages tidal datasets and other oceanographic information including data from instruments such as Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ACDPs) and datasets from modelling systems. The added flexibility adds allows users to quality control, analyse and present complex survey and environmental monitoring data and the software allows users to add custom tidal data and links to external databases. With accessibility extended to the GIS environment, the data will benefit from further processing, manipulation and dissemination.
SeaZone is a world leader in the field of marine geographic information and produces SeaZone Hydrospatial, the first off the shelf digital marine map. SeaZone's marine data and software plays a crucial role for improved decision-making in the marine environment. Over 400 organisations use SeaZone data across the oil and gas, renewable energy, conservation and public sectors.
SeaZone is wholly-owned by Admiralty Holdings Ltd (AHL) which is owned by the UK Secretary of State for Defence and operated on his behalf by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO).
