Navigating Through Land and Water

This year the Geodetic Institute of Slovenia is celebrating its 55th anniversary. As a public institution, the work of the Institute was and remains dedicated to geodesy, photogrammetry, cartography, geomatics and property. Its experts in different fields of the profession are also the lecturers at the University of Ljubljana and, in this way, they transfer their knowledge to younger generations. About 10 years ago, the Institute started hydrographic activities as official support to the Slovenian Hydrographic Office.<P> The Institute for Geodesy and Photogrammetry (IGF) was established on 14 December 1953 as a research institute at the University of Ljubljana.

Multibeam Data Processing

Using CUBE Surfaces for Nautical Cartography and Dredged Measurements
This article is about the evolution of acoustic sounders imposed on Hydrographic Service’s new methodologies for the interpretation, handling and application of hydrographic information. Considering spatial resolution and high-density data acquired by multibeam echosounders (MBES), algorithms such as Combined Uncertainty Bathymetry Estimator (CUBE) are used in the processing workflow to generate depths and uncertainty estimates. Can bathymetric surfaces be considered the final survey product in exchange of the traditional shoals selection? IHPT conducted hydrographic surveys in order to evaluate CUBE processing for nautical cartography and for dredged volume calculation. Shoals validated by hydrographers were compared with CUBE estimated depths and... (read more)

Navionics “XL9” Regions For the Americas and Europe

Navionics has added a new coverage size for its Gold+ Charts, XL9 for the Americas, Europe and Rest of the World. Providing over three times the coverage previously available in XL3-size regions and featuring the same level of detail and accuracy, the XL9 regions are available for the Great Lakes, US navigable rivers and coastal waters throughout the Americas and Europe. The vectorized XL9 charts are legible charts without clutter, holes or discontinuities at every zoom level. With the same details of the XL3 charts at up to 16 zoom levels, XL9 charts offer information on navaids, tide and currents... (read more)

Patrice Coholan Recognised

Patrice D. Coholan, president of Horizon Marine Inc., USA, has been named a Cambridge Who's Who Professional of the Year in Oceanography. While inclusion in the Cambridge Who's Who Registry is an honour, only a small selection of members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honourees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, years of service, and the credentials they have provided in association with their Cambridge Who's Who membership.   With nearly three decades of professional experience and a background in cartography, Ms. Coholan serves as the president of Horizon Marine,...
