Qimera Capabilities

A Paradigm Shift

in Hydrographic Data Processing

The mission of Qimera is to make hydrographic data processing as intuitive and as simple as possible, while still offering powerful capabilities to those that need them, without cluttering the workflow for those that don't.

Reasons to start with Qimera

Beyond the basics.

Qimera ensures absolute ease of use, allowing for inexperienced personnel to easily be using Qimera while the automated and streamlined workflow effectively circumvents human error that might result otherwise. Yet still the software contains the most advanced and cutting-edge tools to ensure the highest quality products, delivered in the most timely fashion.

Trusted worldwide.

By the biggest and the best.

Our Clients
DML were early adopters of Qimera and quite frankly we think it gives us an edge that no other software package offers.

Whether we are using it to deliver vast multi-disciplinary surveys for LINZ (New Zealand Hydrographic Authority) or combining LiDAR and MBES for engineering surveys, QIMERA helps us understand the value of what’s submerged.
