DENVER, Colo., April 12, 2022 – TCarta Marine, a Colorado-based small company and global supplier of hydrospace products, will showcase its satellite-derived bathymetric datasets on Terradepth’s Absolute Ocean visualization platform for the first time at GEOINT 2022. Other presentations on the booth will include the latest SDB techniques for extracting water depth measurements from MAXAR, Sentinel, Satellogic and other satellite imagery data.

TCarta recently signed a partnership agreement with Terradepth, an Austin, Texas organization committed to improving the global understanding of deep ocean ecosystems through advanced data collection and analysis techniques. Absolute Ocean is Terradepth’s browser-accessible, cloud-based ocean data management platform designed to facilitate the exploration of marine geospatial datasets, including multibeam, side scan, synthetic aperture sonar, LiDAR and magnetometer.

“Absolute Ocean offers a unique new way to view and analyze TCarta SDB products,” said TCarta President Kyle Goodrich. “The platform allows users to easily overlay multiple datasets on SDB layers to gain new insights into the subterranean marine environment.”

TCarta will be showcasing Absolute Ocean in Booth 737 at this year’s GEOINT Symposium, taking place April 24-27 in Aurora (Denver), Colorado. On hand to meet attendees and make presentations, Kyle Goodrich, President and Founder of TCarta; Corey Goodrich, Managing Partner; and Ross Smith, technical project manager.

The TCarta team will demonstrate how NASA ICESat-2 LiDAR datasets can be viewed and manipulated for SDB product validation, as well as scheduled 10-15 minute booth presentations on specific products, data and case studies. , including the production of spatial bathymetry from multiple sources in the Trident toolbox.

Trident Tools (SDB) Geoprocessing Toolbox is the software-as-a-service product of TCarta, a series of software applications that run inside Esri ArcGIS Pro and allow organizations to perform their own extraction of bathymetric measurements from satellite imagery, aircraft and UAVs. The Trident toolbox contains a pre-processing tool for allocating source data for in-situ calibration and validation, two algorithm workflows for deriving water depth measurements using machine learning, and empirical regression, and a statistical estimation tool for quality assurance and SDB validation.

With offices in the United States, Jamaica and Canada, TCarta has built an international business on the cost-effective and secure derivation of onshore and offshore datasets using multispectral imagery captured by observation satellites from the Earth – without negative impact on the natural habitat. TCarta’s products and services are used by government, insurance, oil and gas, environmental and infrastructure development customers in applications as diverse as natural resource monitoring, tsunami modeling, disaster response and risks and hydrological studies.

About TCarta (

The TCarta product lines include satellite-derived high-resolution water depth and seabed mapping products, as well as GIS-ready bathymetric data at 90 and 30 meters aggregated from numerous information sources. TCarta also recently unveiled the use of ICESat-2 LiDAR datasets for use in SDB validation, and TCarta Global Satellite Derived Bathymetry (G-SDB) off-the-shelf products. G-SDB is generated with Machine Learning and ICESat-2 laser data at 10m resolution at depths of 30m depending on water clarity.
