Welcome to the 9th edition of Chesapeake Times. Since we started this newsletter back in 2020, it was our way to keep in touch with clients as we suddenly found ourselves locked away from everyone. Or it seemed that way for many of us. Fast forward to today - we’re back on the road traveling, heading to conferences, in person training and meeting up with colleagues. Tempus fugit, Latin for time flies. Perhaps not as fast as we wanted, but we’re back to our routine.
Since January, Chesapeake has released two updates to SonarWiz, as we continue the work on sidescan, sub bottom, bathymetry, and magnetometer. These updates are posted on our website, along with other information and user guides to get you going. Many of the features added are from our client’s requests, to make the software better, easier to use and faster for data processing. Your ideas and suggestions are reviewed weekly and added to the queue for development. I encourage you to continue to send in these requests or let us know next time you speak with our team. You’ll read about some of the advances in this newsletter.
Next month I hope you can join us at our regional training in Traverse City, MI for a three-day workshop, May 10 – 12. We’ll spend one day on each topic, with hands-on practice and data collection on board a vessel. I’m also pleased to announce our annual training to be held in Wilmington, NC on December 6-8. You’ll find details of these training sessions and more on our website.
