Is StructureScan worth it? You be the judge

Debating whether it’s worth the upgrade to the new HDS7 Gen2 Touch StructureScan bundle?  Outside of the bigger screen and more intuitive touch technology than its older generation HDS5 sibling, the imagery produced by StructureScan should be reason enough!
Below are the same areas of a lake in Minnesota using the traditional 200 khz signal (top) and the 455 khz DownScan add-on (bottom).  A school of fish hovering over Eurasian watermilfoil plants is clearly resolved in the bottom image.  The wider cone angle of the traditional signal cannot adequately resolve these minute features.  BioBase leverages both signals to produce accurate map data sets and reproduce spatially explicit imagery for plant cover typing.  Contact us if you would like to know more about HDS features or are interested in purchasing a unit
