The Summer 2014 edition of the Hydrographic Society Magazine features an article about some of the work that Helyx has performed on the topic of 3D Visualisation in the Maritime Environment. Using 3D visualisation in the maritime environment has the potential to drive efficiencies and operational benefits including improved situation awareness, an ability to visualise key navigation aids and an ability to analyse and visualise the temporal impact of the tide. Research and development by Helyx has enabled the creation of a 3D model of the littoral zone.
