NaviModel offers high-performance digital terrain models in 2D and 3D and high-tech tools for model analyses and manipulations.

This includes carrying out comparison over time by visualising the development between different datasets from the same site, acquired at different points in time – what we call 4D.

NaviModel comes in three variants:

With the NaviModel Producer variant, you get the complete software solution comprising all the features of NaviModel for data processing, cleaning, modelling and reporting.


'I find NaviModel an excellent tool for producing high quality images
for my work and publications. I am impressed with the
simple interface which makes working with point clouds
and digital terrain models very straightforward.'

    SBP sub-bottom profiler

    You are able to work with several SEG-Y files in NaviModel at the same time. When NaviModel is loading the sub-bottom profiling data, the software extracts a rough track that is then taken through a two-step process of extracting a point every 100 metres, and then refined to 3 metres.

  • Sonar cleaning

    Sonar cleaning

    Point data derived from sonar or laser systems can be cleaned, QC’d and edited using a plethora of manual or automatic tools. Cleaning operations can be applied multiple times to a complete data set or user-defined areas. For each cleaning operation, quality flags are assigned to every data point, so you never lose access to the original raw data.

    Automatic processing features

    The NaviSuite Workflow Manager tool is designed to enable a previously unseen degree of automatic data processing of massive amounts of subsea sensor data.

    AUV processing workflow

    The first version of the Workflow Manager utilises NaviEdit and NaviModel for a traditional survey data set processing of data from AUV dive. As soon as the data is available, it is automatically loaded into the flow and processed by cleaning data, merging reprocessed AUV track, building DTMs and making sanity checks. This is typically done using the Server version.

    AUV processing workflow

    NaviSuite Kuda processing workflow

    The Workflow Manager desktop version is very well suited for NaviSuite Kuda operations where each file will be processed right after recording, thus enabling reporting and quality control as you go. The Desktop version runs one task at the time – but it is more than fast enough to cope with survey speed.

    NaviSuite Kuda processing workflow

    Execute multiple parallel NaviEdit, NaviModel and 3rd party commands

    The more CPU (cores), memory and disk speed you have – the better you utilise the workflow engine. The optimal solution is running a bit fewer processes than the number of cores.

    Cable route design with bending and slope constraints and cable route vessel placement verification

    NaviModel includes a general planning tool for cable and flexible pipe routes. Based on the initial route (imported or drawn), the cable route will be placed on the seabed using the cable characteristics. Operators can then modify the route and in real-time see free-span, side-slopes and curvature. When the final route has been accepted, the system calculates and simulates vessel track using standard catenary data models.
