MSDI Solution for France - 01/04/2008

CARIS has been awarded a contract by the Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine (SHOM) to deliver a Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI) to access its hydrographic information. CherSoft as a subcontractor will supply a tide database as part of the solution.


The Launch of the project occurred in mid-February for a week, with focused meetings on project strategy and benefits. Through this contract, referred to as INFRAGEOS-H (Infrastructure Géospatiale du SHOM for Hydrographic data), CARIS will deliver a technological infrastructure built on CARIS bathymetric and hydrographic data management software, Bathy DataBASE, CARIS Hydrographic Production Database, and Web-mapping software, Spatial Fusion Enterprise, and the CherSoft tide database to produce this MSDI.

The MSDI will be a central, interoperable source for all SHOM hydrographic geospatial information. The data and information housed in the MSDI will be accessible at SHOM, from the regional hydrographic units and even in the field by survey platforms.
