This year Oceans 19 is partnering with the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies (IFHS) to gather the whole Blue Community together in Marseille, France.

In the run-up to World Hydrography Day (WHD) 2019, IFHS will host a one-day workshop dedicated to hydrography on Monday 17th June.

The workshop aims to highlight hydrographic expertise and challenges through an interesting programme addressing topics such as survey standards, crowdsourced bathymetry, data rescue, capacity building, hydrographic education and individual certification.

The workshop will also celebrate the newest entrants to the profession with the official announcement of, and presentations by, the winners of the prestigious IFHS Student Award for 2018 and 2019.
