Danish Hydrographic Office Turns to GIS for Automated Maritime Charting

A Radical Update Was Needed
Denmark has challenging seascapes to map and chart. It has a rich history of nautical charting that dates back to the seventeenth century, and many of its navigational products for Greenland were created in the 1960s. When GPS started to gain prominence, a radical update was needed. Apart from its 42-mile land border with Germany, the peninsular country of Denmark, with its scores of bays, straits, and fjords, is surrounded almost entirely by the North and Baltic Seas.

Workflow for Comprehensive Bathymetric Data Management

Interactive Visualization Systems (IVS) 3D has joined ESRI's business partner program. This partnership will benefit organisations with workflows that visualise and analyse bathymetric data for use in the maritime community including the defense, petroleum, environment, and hydrographic sectors.     The two companies are working toward the ability to read and write from IVS 3D's Fledermaus suite of software directly into ESRI's geodatabase, the common data storage and management framework for ArcGIS. Fledermaus will be able to embrace a service-oriented architecture. Added benefits for ArcGIS users include the ability to perform sounding selection and surface modeling to international standards, as... (read more)
