SURge - A Novel idea
Hydrographic Survey Reporting has always been a tough grind for Surveyors at field. Presenting it in an impressive manner consumes a lot of time in formatting, finding the correct logos and diagrams, the schematic representations of observations, the relevant calculations - the result of which has to be neatly incorperated in the report - but has nothing to do with the operational part of the job. Considering the usual cramp working environment onboard, these long and tedious Reporting exercises exhaust all the energy of the Surveyor and make his life dolorous. Being active surveyors, We often came across such situations, which made us think about working on a project to prepare a consolidated software platform for survey reporting, where one just need to input the parameters on a Graphic User Interface and select the observation data files to produce a well manicured Survey Report. We began to work on that idea during our free offshore days, and after almost 2 years, We managed to produce a decent product after a lot of R&D.
