Marine and hydrographic professionals from large and small agencies alike will learn how to manage marine data effectively.
Participants will experience the latest tools and workflows for bathymetric data processing and management, chart production, web access and distribution using the latest versions of HIPS and SIPS, Bathy DataBASE, Notebook, S-57 Composer, Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) and Spatial Fusion Enterprise.
Among the technological highlights relating to the “Ping” will include an introduction to Geocoder, the CSAR Framework and 3D visualisation.
On the “Chart “side of the workflow, the workshop will explore the advancements in the latest version of S-57 Composer, discuss the consolidation of HPD Product Editors and introduce the Paper Chart Composer software.
Finally, participants will learn how processed bathymetry and chart data can be made available through the web for use in Spatial Data Infrastructures.
