|Description:||Processing and Displaying Swath Sonar Data (5.4.2191-1)|
Warning: GSF support with be disabled soon. -Kurt Schwehr, Jan 2014. MB-System is an open source software package for the processing and display of bathymetry and backscatter imagery data derived from multibeam, interferometry, and sidescan sonars. This software is distributed freely (and for free) in the form of source code for Unix platforms. The heart of the system is an input/output library called MBIO which allows programs to work transparently with any of a number of supported swath sonar data formats. This approach has allowed the creation of "generic" utilities which can be applied in a uniform manner to sonar data from a variety of sources. Most of the programs are command-line tools, but the package does include graphical tools for editing swath bathymetry, editing navigation, modeling bathymetry calculation, and adjusting survey navigation. Has its own internal proj library that will not be installed so that it will not conflict with the standard proj.
Take a look at the MB-Cookbook: http://www.mbari.org/data/mbsystem/mb-cookbook/index.html Also, if you want the scripts to open the Apple Preview application, set your MB_PS_VIEWER to open or you can use mbdefaults to set a viewer: mbdefaults -D open
