The Future of ECDIS

After a gap of five years, the 2nd ECDIS Conference took place in Singapore in October 2003. At first glance everything was as before: the venue of the conference, its organisers, the lecturers and companies involved, and Ð strangely enough Ð even many of the titles of the presentations. But the most important item had changed and this was the mood in which the topic was presented. Five years ago almost everybody agreed that we were about to see a great breakthrough in the ambitious IMO/IHO ECDIS venture. This time, a gloomy mood of resignation and frustration seems to have...

Excited by Automation Driven by Autonomous Vehicles

Hydro International Interviews Capt. Shep Smith
NOAA is one of the bigger organisations in the world that has surveying and charting in its portfolio. It’s an immense task as the USA has about 95,000 miles of coastline, important ports and a wide range of users – from recreational boaters to the biggest container vessels and tankers. The country also has to deal with environmental disasters like hurricanes and oil spills. NOAA is undergoing changes as the chart portfolio is ‘going digital’ and new initiatives such as using Maritime Autonomous Systems (MAS) for surveys. Hydro International interviews Capt Shep Smith, who generously gave an insight behind the scenes.

Raw Data as Information Source

Model for Remediation Design Study of Southeast Asian Port Basin
For hydro- and topographic surveying companies it is common to gather data in the field and process it into formats for presentation. Nowadays, technology  provides more and more solutions that enable analysis of the extensive amounts of measured data points directly, instead of the post-processed data and figures. Hence, using the raw data with fewer processing steps. Processing and post-processing of elevation data into maps, charts and cross sections will remain an important deliverable from a hydro- and/or topographic survey. However, the raw data itself will play an increasingly important  role with the availability of current technologies, as has been... (read more)
