HCU Students Join S-57 Workshop - 19/05/2014


A group of students participating in the GIS-hydrography module of HafenCity University's (HCU, Germany) masters programme in geomatics were invited to attend a workshop at the SevenCs’ office in Hamburg on 5 May 2014. The course was an introduction to the production of S-57 data by means of SevenCs ENC Tools. Attendees could experience hands–on training to gain insight into the production of electronic navigational charts (ENCs).

Jochen Rudolph, managing director of SevenCs and ChartWorld, commented that having the HCU nearby provides the company with an opportunity to gain insight into the world of digital cartography related to maritime navigation. The contact with students brings both vital and mutual exchanges of information.

Prof Markéta Pokorná from HCU added that it is great to see the industry-university cooperation happen so quickly. The students enjoyed the day and all share the enthusiasm for the field of digital hydrographic maritime information.

Students of the HCU masters programme in geomatics (with specialisation in hydrography) who want to deepen their knowledge or require some of the software for their research can utilise the SevenCs ENC Tools especially provided for academic purposes. Both HCU and SevenCs are looking forward to enriching their cooperation in the future.
