In the past, it was assumed that the accuracy of positions and depths of single beam echosounder were equivalent to the precision of the equipment used by assumption that the beam width of single beam echosounder was typically wide enough to absorb the positioning error caused by roll and pitch, the positioning system was located on top of transducer and because of the cost of a gyrocompass, launches seldom logged heading information. Since positioning and depth determination technology become increasingly more accurate, the study of survey boat’s offset and attitude become critical to ensure accurate position and depth. Since the mid 1990’s, affordable and accurate motion sensor and gyro compass instruments have significantly reduced these errors (USACE 2002). The goal of this paper is to determine and reduce the offset, heading, and attitude (i.e. roll, pitch and heave) effects in a single beam hydrographic data.
