Bathymetry & Hydrographic Data Weeks 12 Sep - 16 Oct

These theme weeks take us to the very core of our industry. The nautical chart – the original driver of hydrography – is still going strong and, be it in paper form or ENC, is used on every ship. To create these, extensive bathymetric surveys are performed and additional data is collected on aids to navigation and topography. However, it is not only the nautical chart that requires bathymetric data: this is and will continue to be the backbone of hydrographic surveying employing echosounders, side-scan sonar and advanced positioning systems.
