4D Geo-spatial processing and analysis tool Fledermaus

Fledermaus is the industry leading interactive 4D geospatial processing and analysis tool. With the release of Version 7 we have moved this to the next dimension: the addition of a fully integrated time reference allowing users to work in a true 4D space and time environment.

Commercial, academic and government clients use the Fledermaus software worldwide. They use the software to interact with massive geographical datasets of numerous data types for ocean mapping and land-based projects.

The intuitive 4D display and interaction allows clients to rapidly gain insight and extract more information from their underlying data.

This provides our clients with added value in data processing efficiency, quality control accuracy, data analysis completeness, and project integration, that promotes clear communication. A wide variety of industry standard formats are supported for direct import of data to the 3D scene, and the extensive functionality of Fledermaus allows its use across many phases of a project from the planning, processing and QC, through to analysis and production of images, plots and animations.


Fledermaus Geocoder is an advanced MBES backscatter processing platform, 64-bit and multi-threaded, and supporting a plug-in architecture it provides for quick, flexible backscatter mosaic creation and signal-based Angle Range Analysis (ARA) seafloor characterization.

Fledermaus Midwater rapidly extracts relevant water column features from a range of sonar file formats. Raw sonar files are first converted to a Generic Water Column format (GWC) for use in further processing and visualization. A simple graphical user interface is used to perform threshold filtering on a number of key parameters to help with feature extraction. .



Fledermaus Midwater provides multiple views of the water column features and allows for easy export to a variety of Fledermaus visualization objects and 3rd party exchange formats
