Remote Hydrography

Date30-31 October 2019
VenueNational Oceanography Centre

Hydrographic surveying, and the roles of its practitioners, are in the midst of a paradigm shift. The development and adoption of disruptive technologies, techniques and solutions are increasing survey capacity, capabilities and productivity like never before, whilst simultaneously reducing the risks and costs involved.

Autonomous and unmanned aerial, surface and underwater survey platforms, remote survey command and support services, and techniques such as Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB), Crowdsourced Bathymetry (CSB), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Forward Looking Sonar (FLS) are revolutionising hydrographic data collection, processing, analysis and presentation.

Through an inspiring programme of keynote speakers, presentations and panel-led discussion forums, the two-day Remote Hydrography conference, and small accompanying exhibition, will focus on the latest innovations, applications and deployments in remote and automated hydrography. It will consider how these tools are providing novel approaches, efficiencies and benefits to the commercial survey industry, as well as enhancing the exploration and mapping of the world's seafloor, population the white spaces on charts, improvement of navigational safety and implementation of e-Navigation and autonomous shipping.
