We are planning to develop a software that will provide graphical representation of the seabed when given the appropriate charts and data collected. The problem is that we don't know what tools is suitable for rendering graphical map representations for sea floor maps. The goal is to produce a 3D and 2D graphical environment that may animate and the data is an input from world data charts.
There are many tools for graphic rendering like AutoDesk or AutoCAD, Maya and may more. But, is there a tool like these that will accept a feed of data from an input of a separate program?

Echo sounders aboard ships have components called transducers that both transmit and receive sound waves. Echo sounding is the key method scientists use to map the seafloor today. We also use AutoCAD, in 2D 3D drafting.

Yes, there are several graphics designing tools that can render sea floor maps in both 2D and 3D. Here are a few examples:
  1. ArcGIS: A geographic information system (GIS) software that can be used for creating and analyzing sea floor maps in 2D and 3D. It offers a range of tools for data visualization, analysis, and mapping.
  2. QGIS: This is an open-source GIS software that offers a range of tools for data visualization, analysis, and mapping. It can also be extended with plugins.
  3. Blender: This is a 3D graphics software that can be used for rendering sea floor maps in 3D. It offers a range of tools for creating 3D models, textures, and animations.

You are right, these are indeed some examples of graphics designing tools that can be used to render sea floor maps in both 2D and 3D. ArcGIS is a GIS software, while QGIS is an open-source GIS software, and Blender is a 3D graphics software. All of them offer a variety of tools for data visualization, analysis, and mapping, and can be used for different purposes depending on the needs of the user.

There are several software tools available, such as ArcGIS, QGIS, and Global Mapper, that can accept data inputs and render graphical map representations for sea floor maps. These tools can import data from various sources, including charts and data collected from the sea floor, and produce 3D and 2D graphical representations.
