CARIS was recently at Services Hydrographie et Oceanographie de la Marine (SHOM) in Brest, France for a training course on CARIS HPD. The two-week long training course focused on the creation of ENC and paper charts and was led by CARIS’ Nadia Thériault.
By the end of the year, the team from SHOM will undertake a pilot project utilizing their newly learnt skills as a preparation phase for their future chart production workflow using HPD. These activities are a part of the larger SPCO project (charts and books production system). One of the objectives of the project is to modernize the current production systems.
