Description from the Publisher

Hydromagic is a professional hydrographic survey package, which can be used to map depth areas using an echosounder.

Hydrographic Survey Software for Windows, Load topographic or nautical maps, create singlebeam soundings, generate DTM\'s (Digital Terrain Models), generate depth contours, generate cross-sections, volume calculations and more. The software can be used with various map formats including: GeoTIFF, Microstation DGN, ARC/INFO, MapInfo MIF/MID, AutoCad DXF files, IHO S57/S63 Electronic Natutical Charts and ESRI shapefiles.

Support for GPS and RTK receivers

The software can communicate with almost any (NMEA0183 compatible) GPS or RTK receiver to retrieve your current position and height, and show it on one of the support raster or vectormaps. In addition, with a RTK receiver, you can calculate tide levels in real-time.

Support for echosounders

Hydromagic offers support for a wide range of both cheap echosounders or fishfinders, and professional (dual frequency) hydrographic echosounders.

Support for other sensors

Besides GPS and echosounder, also other hardware, such as a tide receiver, magnetometer, motion or tilt sensor, heading sensor (compass) or an AIS receiver can be connected.


To display a part of the globe on a display, a map projection is needed to prevent distortion of the map data. The software is shipped with a database containing over 5000 predefined local and global map datums and grids.

  • Create channel designs and show channel cross-sections;
  • Calculate volumes using DTM's (Digital Terrain Models) or cross sections;
  • Automatic (RTK) or manual tide correction;
  • Built in map downloading tool; Download maps for the survey area from Google Earth, Bing Maps or OpenStreetMaps;
  • Map calibration, to use your own downloaded or scanned GIF, PNG, BMP, JPG and TIF maps;
  • Dataview to display all incoming information retrieved from GPS, echosounder and other sensors;
  • Shoreline editor; Manually enter soundings or levels for places you cannot access with a boat;
