HYPACK Inc, a global leader in hydrographic surveying and dredging software and Marine Magnetics, a worldwide leader in the manufacturer of magnetometers, have entered into joint cooperation to provide a complete solution for magnetometer surveys.
Following the purchase of a fleet of magnetometers by SHOM (French Hydrographic Department), Marine Magnetics and HYPACK, Inc. worked together to provide a solution to better acquire and process the magnetometer data.
This solution comes in the form of an updated interface for magnetometer data collection and the release of HYPACK’s new MAGEDIT program, developed with SHOM’s specifications and collaboration.
MAGEDIT was designed to allow surveyors to make adjustments to both ship and shore-based magnetometers, using the IGRF Model. Magnetic anomalies can be computed by differencing the ship-based measurements with either the IGRF model or with a shore-based magnetometer.
Using the gratiometric comparison, anomalies of a user-defined size can be automatically targeted for plotting and review.
HYPACK ‘s MAGEDIT program is a standard tool in HYPACK 2014 which will be distributed to over 8,000 users subscribed to the Maintenance Plan.
