In addition to aerial (drone) surveying and traditional GPS and Robotic land surveying, RTR has now added Bathymetric Surveying to our ever growing list of capabilities. Bathymetry (from the Greek for “deep measure“) consists of surveying the bottoms of bodies of water using a sonar unit affixed beneath a remote controlled, GPS enabled boat. The GPS unit visible above the boat gathers satellite data while the blue-tooth enabled echo-sounder beneath bounces sound waves off the pond bottom to map the underwater topography (in the videos below depths are captured once every second). “SS RTR” allows us to create topographic maps of the bottom of any body of water and, using Autodesk Civil3D, determine the volume of water contained within. The addition of Bathymetry to our capabilities, combined with our time-saving custom apps and experience makes our Survey department capable of handling any survey project and turning it around more efficiently than any other firm.
