In view of the complexity and variability of bathymetric data, the paper introduces a new algorithm named DAE-WGAN to construct sea bottom trend surface. This new model is an alternative to traditional GAN training method, combined with the advantages of Denoising Autoencoder (DAE) and Wasserstein Generative Adversarial Network (WGAN). Firstly, the network structure is introduced in detail, in which the critic (or ‘discriminator’) estimates the Wasserstein-1 distance between the generated-sample distributions and the real-sample distributions, and optimizes the generator to approximate the minimum Wasserstein-1 distance, which effectively improves the stability of the adversarial training. Moreover, the generalized Denoising Autoencoder algorithm is added to train the back-propagation process, having a better ability of dimensionality reduction, which improves the robustness of the whole algorithm. Then, using two different types of bathymetric data (seabed tiny-terrain data and Electronic Nautical Chart data), we had long-time experiments to train the DAE-WGAN till optimality, and got the better sea bottom trend surface. Finally, by comparison with other GAN models (such as InFoGAN, LSGAN), the results show that the proposed method has an obvious improvement in accuracy, stability and robustness, and further illustrate the feasibility of this method in bathymetric precise data processing area.
