Sextant

Hydrographic survey software, capable of interfacing to any conceivable sensor. Sextant can provide customised outputs in addition to standard outputs, for example for echo-sounder annotation and to provide steering data for autopilots. Works with multiple coordinate systems at one time, available from a large library of systems.
