Marine Data Infrastructure

As hydrographic data gains more importance in marine exploitation activities and ocean protection initiatives, GCC governments are investing significantly in advanced technology for data integration, management and access. The first event of its kind in the region, Marine Data Infrastructure GCC will bring together marine data management experts, regulators, maritime sector stakeholders and technology providers to discuss ocean monitoring and data collection techniques, best practices and the latest technological advancements.

Infrastructure Survey in Turkey

Fugro has been awarded a contract by the joint venture NÖMAYG (NUROL, ÖZALTIN, MAKYOL, ASTALDI, YÜKSEL and GÖÇAY) in Turkey for site investigations and consultancy work for a major infrastructure project on the Izmit Bay Bridge in Turkey. The project, to start immediately, has a value of EUR11.9m and will extend into the third quarter of 2010.   The contract involves onshore and offshore geophysics, drilling for samples, seismic studies, geological mapping, geotechnical laboratory testing and earthquake engineering. With these specialised services Fugro will assist NÖMAYG, who has won the concession to design, build and operate the 421-kilometre Bursa-Balikesir-Izmir Highway... (read more)

LINZ Hydrographic Infrastructure Project

Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) is the New Zealand Government's steward of authoritative hydrographic information for nautical charts and publications and provides the hydrographic infrastructure to support these services and products. This includes the policy, administration, people, technology and spatial information. LINZ inherited the infrastructure from the Royal New Zealand Navy in 1996. Digital and analogue data are stored in numerous datasets. However, the information is primarily in hard copy and there is no consistent metadata across these datasets. This system is not responding to the demands of the organisation and its clients. LINZ has sought an approach to standardising... (read more)

Maritime Information Infrastructure for Clydeport

OceanWise has completed Phase One of a maritime information infrastructure on behalf of Clydeport, UK. The project builds on Clydeport’s recent investment in GIS software and was targeted at improving data and information management within the Hydrographic and Dredging Department. The project is already realising benefits and attracting a lot of interest, both from within the Marine Department as a whole and elsewhere in the port. The work started with an analysis of existing practices and systems that resulted in the preparation of a GIS ‘Roadmap’ and spatial and environmental data management system to allow information to be shared and...

Monitoring GNSS Infrastructure Network Dynamics

Trimble has introduced an application for monitoring the dynamics of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) infrastructure networks: Trimble Integrity Manager software. In a GNSS network, movement of a reference antenna results in reduced data integrity. Antennas can shift for a variety of reasons such as tectonics, weather or simple human error. With Trimble Integrity Manager, network operators will know immediately if movement has occurred and whether action is needed.   The software provides a constant assessment of a network's quality with detailed reports, analysis and alarms to monitor the position of network antennas, giving operators key insight into the health...

Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI)

The Hydrographic Office (HO) is an important part of the National Geo-Spatial Data Infrastructure and, of course, the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) has an important role to play in co-ordinating the requirements and demands for data collection, interoperability, dissemination, access, standards, security, pricing policy and possible funding models. It has been recognised at both national and international level that data and information collected for the production of navigational charts and the support of safety of navigation are also important to many other aspects of the science and management of the ocean and marine environment. In a demanding, globalised and constantly... (read more)

MacArtney and Teledyne ODI Solve Infrastructure Challenge

In partnership with Teledyne ODI, MacArtney France will provide the underwater mateable connectors needed to realise the Mediterranean Eurocentre for Underwater Sciences and Technologies (MEUST) neutrino observatory project. The MEUST project is a second-generation deep-sea neutrino observatory infrastructure project integrated in the European network of neutrino telescope KM3NeT and deep-sea observatory EMSO. This new infrastructure is the km3 scale successor of the revolutionary ANTARES underwater neutrino telescope for which MacArtney supplied all the cables and connectors. The MEUST infrastructure will be installed in the Mediterranean Sea approximately 45 kilometres off Toulon, France, at 2,500m water depth. Detecting the Undetectable The... (read more)

Greece Selects Trimble for GNSS Infrastructure Network

Trimble has been selected by the Greek National Cadastre, Ktimatologio, to supply Trimble VRS network hardware and software to establish a nationwide Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) infrastructure network for the country of Greece. Trimble will also provide complete network set up, deployment and operation during the initial start-up period. The Trimble VRS network will provide a fixed geospatial infrastructure for surveying, engineering and Geographic Information System (GIS) professionals that enables high accuracy real-time kinematic (RTK) GNSS positioning. Known as HEPOS (Hellenic Positioning System), the GNSS network will consist of approximately 100 Trimble NetRS GPS Receivers and 100 Trimble Zephyr... (read more)

Maintaining Windfarm Infrastructure – Offshore Energy 2018

The Hydrographic Society Benelux (HSB) organised a workshop in conjunction with the Offshore Energy 2018 exhibition at RAI in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on the 24 October 2018. Four speakers took to the stage discussing the theme ‘Maintenance aspects of windfarm infrastructure’ related to the Offshore Energy 2018 exhibition and conference. Rob Lambij, who worked at the Ministry of Waterworks, Directorate of the North sea and co-founder of the Foundation “wet” archaeological projects (SNAP), started off the day with a talk entitled ‘Fishery and bottom related obstacles on the North Sea’. An estimated 10,000 objects (e.g. shipwrecks, ammunition, lost cargo, ships... (read more)
