This guy did his M.Tech thesis as bathymetry data from HYDICE hyper spectral data: https://my.nps.edu/documents/106458200/109356544/stuffle.pdf/f62cba19-0c62-42c3-8f68-ab2955913eba

This was accomplished by masking different bottom types based on spectra, effects that were not included in previous methods. HYDICE data was taken over Lake Tahoe on June 22, 1995. The high altitude of the lake provided a low aerosol content within the atmosphere. This allowed for relatively straight forward atmospheric corrections. This was substantially easier than in an oceanic environment. The atmospheric radiative transfer code MODTRAN3.0 was used to model the atmospheric conditions at the time of the experiment. The radiative transfer code HYDROLIGHT3.5 was used to model the attenuation coefficients of the relatively clear water of the lake. Minimal river input and low chlorophyll concentrations made it simpler to determine these values. Making use of the full spectral content of data within theopticalrange,multiplesubstratesweredifferentiatedandmaskedoff. Thisallowed for an estimation on wet substrate reflectance and a straight forward calculation of bottom depth.

http://humviewer.cm-johansen.dk – this software can be used to view humminbird output. The other 2 softwares are DrDepth and ReefMaster. DrDepth crack successfully installed in windows 8 with disabling the internet connection. But ReefMaster crack which we suppose to put in the c/programfiles was detected as malware. So uninstall the avast and copied them. But after that it wasn’t able to open any files using ReefMaster.
