Our organization has collected bathymetry data through the use of an AUV (.logdoc) and lowrance side scan sonar (.Sl2). Is there a way to use these data file formats in ArcMap bathymetry? In order to add bathymetry, I know it needs to be in gridded raster format (BAG, GeoTIFF) or a point feature class (w/ footprint polygon).
I was able to convert the SL2 files into kml and/or csv using an online converter.
Not sure how to move forward. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
I had trouble using the geoprocessing tool and I'm not sure why. perhaps it has something to do with my data.
In using point data, a footprint polygon is needed. Do I need the Defense Mapping extension to create this or can it be done with another tool and still be used in bathymetry?
