Theme of Hydrography Day 2012: International Cooperation06/02/2012
|'International Hydrographic Cooperation - Supporting safe navigation' has been proposed as the theme for the celebration of World Hydrography Day (WHD) 2012. This theme is to provide Member States with the opportunity to promote their involvement in international activities at bilateral, multinational, regional and global levels covering bilateral support, data exchange, chart coverage, standards development and regional cooperation.|
The comments received from Member States at the IHB have all been in support of this theme.
The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO, Monaco) website will be provided with a special page to support activities in various countries. The IHO also is to organise activities with schools raising awareness about hydrography and emphasising World Hydrography Day.
A reception will be organised to which His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, members of his government and other officials and representatives from diplomatic missions, other organisations and local maritime industry will be invited.
The theme of this year's WHD is encouraged to be used to draw the attention of their governments, appropriate administrations, local maritime industry and other bodies to the significance of the IHO and its Member States' Hydrographic Offices, and especially to the importance of international hydrographic cooperation for accomplishing the many hydrographic activities that contribute to the safety of navigation, protection of the marine environment, sustainable development, economic well-being and security.

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files
QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
