Kongsberg GeoAcoustics GeoTexture is a unique software package for the analysis of side scan sonar data.

It has a powerful suite of tools for normalising the side scan sonar image texture across the swath, which significantly improves the quality of the side scan mosaics for human and machine interpretation. It can also be trained to remember and recognise multiple textures across and between images, and produce classified maps.

This makes GeoTexture an invaluable tool for interpreting sonar images of the seabed environment. It is used for for applications ranging from civil engineering and site survey to biological habitat mapping.
