CARIS announces the final acceptance by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) of the Hydrographic Database (HDB) Project

February 09, 2009 -- Project team members EDS (an HP company), CARIS and LSC Group are proud to announce the final acceptance by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) of the Hydrographic Database (HDB) Project.

Through the HDB Project, EDS and CARIS have delivered workflow management technologies from EDS together with CARIS Bathy DataBASE and CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) software to manage and create paper and electronic chart products. This combined solution will represent an enterprise production environment where multiple products are created and updated from a centrally managed source.

The bid phase for the project began in November of 2004 and was awarded to EDS and CARIS in October 2006, as a result of a competitive demonstrator phase.

“The successful acceptance of the system concludes an important development program for our team,” said Sara Cockburn, Manager of the Special Projects Group at CARIS. “We are very proud of this outcome and are delighted with the success of the system as a whole. It allows CARIS to continue to demonstrate its competence and reliability as a partner, not only in the delivery of production-ready solutions, but in the implementation of systems delivered for specialized hydrographic processes.”

”I have been delighted with the positive way the UKHO, EDS, CARIS and LSC project teams have worked together over several years to achieve a significant outcome. I believe that the CARIS HPD product lies at the heart of this success.” Simon Baldwin, UKHO Project Manager.

Using the new system, data is stored in a common database and shared by products, providing a higher degree of consistency between product types. This unique workflow-oriented and database-driven approach to data management and production will bring significant business benefits to the UKHO in production optimization and efficiency.

Established in 1979, CARIS is a leading developer of geospatial software. The CARIS Ping-to-Chart product line delivers integrated software solutions for the entire workflow of hydrographic information from the echosounder “ping” through to the production and distribution of the “chart”. CARIS products are continually selected by hydrographic offices, military agencies, survey contractors, ports and harbours, municipalities, land administrators and academia among others. In addition to its Canadian headquarters, CARIS has offices in The Netherlands, United States, Australia and United Kingdom. There are also more than 40 resellers bringing sales and support of CARIS brand software to more than 75 countries.
