The Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) in conjunction with the Australasian Hydrographic Society (AHS) are holding a World Hydrography Day (WHD) seminar and dinner in Darwin on 21 June 2017.

Many end users of spatial data may not be directly involved in hydrographic surveying but will have some link to the outputs.  To understand what hydrographic surveyors can provide your spatial profession you should consider attending this seminar and realise your unknown connection. 

Areas where hydrographic surveying influences other spatial sciences and are intended topics of the seminar include:    

The WHD theme for the seminar is Mapping our seas and oceans - more important than ever.

This theme will raise awareness that  depths have not been directly measured in about 50% of the World's coastal waters and about 90% of the oceans. Further, it raises awareness of the current lack of comprehensive data to underpin many maps and charts of the seas and oceans. It will help promote and encourage innovative supplementary data gathering and data maximizing initiatives already under investigation in the IHO, including crowd-sourced bathymetry (volunteered geographic data) and satellite-derived bathymetry.

The theme will also help to promote the increasing role of those involved in hydrography in maritime spatial data infrastructures and the benefits of making hydrographic data accessible to the widest possible audience for uses that go well beyond the safety of navigation.
