Geomatics Data Solutions have experience in cable route survey data acquisition, processing and chart production.  We can provide our clients with North-up and Alignment charting for small to large projects.  Although our primary focus has been during the route survey phase, GDS can also provide charting services for cable route projects at the desktop study and final as-laid charting stages.

Geomatics Data Solutions has completed charting projects for all the major telecommunications companies and maintains an in-depth knowledge of all the specifications and requirements necessary to complete these projects on-time and to the highest quality.

GDS creates the required north-up charts prior to commencement of the route survey and provides a full set of charts to the vessel (with crew if required). This minimizes the time required to complete the on-board charting and provides clients with near real time charts.

Geomatics Data Solutions can provide:

  • Pre-plots (complete background charts prior to commencement of route survey)
  • Processing and contouring of bathymetric data
  • Processing and interpretation of geophysical data
  • Preliminary and final north-up charts
  • Final alignment charts
  • Digital data products for Makai Plan
