Qimera Bathymetry Toolbar
Qimera Bathymetry Toolbar
The Bathymetry Toolbar is the primary toolbar in Qimera that deals with Project Management, Data Management, Processing, Surface Creation and finally Sounding Editing.
This will launch the Create Project Dialog for creation of a new project.
This will launch a standard explore window to browse to a new project to load. Qimera projects are folders that contain a specific format and a qpsproject.xml file.
Add Sonar Files
This will launch the Add Raw Sonar Files dialog enabling the user to load supported sonar file formats to the project.
Add Points Files
This will launch the Add Processed Point Files dialog enabling the user to load supported processed point file formats to the project.
Automatically Add Sonar Files
Processing and Settings
This will launch the Processing Settings dialog.
This will launch any required processing as determined by Qimera's Dynamic Workflow. See the section on Dynamic Workflow for more information on how Qimera determines whether files need to be processed or not. It will also update any dynamic surface with edits pending.
This will launch the Create Dynamic Surface dialog that will create a dynamic surface from the selected source data and optionally the currently selected rectangular area. A Dynamic Surface can be edited and reflects any changes to the underlying processed data.
This will launch the Create Static Surface dialog that will create a dynamic surface from the selected source data and optionally the currently selected rectangular area. A static surface cannot be edited.
This will launch the Swath Editor on the currently selected line. If no line is selected, Qimera will select the first processed raw sonar file line.
This will launch the Slice Editor on the currently selected Dynamic Surface using the current area selection. If no area is selected, Qimera will create a slice selection in the center of the currently selected Dynamic Surface.
This will launch the 3D Editor on the currently selected surface area.
Instant Surface Tools
The last button on the toolbar offers one of three tools, Instant Surface Reject/Accept/Filter, which can be applied inside a polygon selection to the currently selected Dynamic Surface. Access to all tools are available from a menu shown with a long click on the button.
The user should be careful as these tools can have unintended consequences. For example, if you make a large spatial selection in Instant Surface Reject mode on a Dynamic Surface, all soundings in the selection will be rejected instantly.
Instant Surface Reject
In the Instant Surface Reject mode all soundings within a polygon selection will instantly be rejected and the surface will be updated.
Instant Surface Accept
In the Instant Surface Accept mode all soundings within a polygon selection will instantly be accepted and the surface will be updated.
Instant Surface Filter
This will start the Instant Surface Filter mode which automatically applies the currently selected filter whenever the user makes a spatial selection.
