CARIS will hold a workshop on seafloor data titled "Effective Marine Data Management and Dissemination." At the INSPIRE Conference 2011
INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial information in Europe) is a directive established by the 27 member countries of the European Union to ensure that their spatial data infrastructures are compatible and usable throughout the union. The INSPIRE Conference 2011 will take place from June 27th to July 1st in Edinburgh, Scotland and will have a theme based on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
The CARIS workshop, on June 28th, will highlight how spatial information that exists in the hydrographic and marine sciences community can be integrated into an SDI. The workshop will give a special focus to high-resolution bathymetry data and how it can be served interoperably through Open Geospatial Consortium® services, making the data readily available for discovery, extraction and download.
If you work for an organization with a mandate or requirement to share bathymetry data or other hydrographic information in a compliant way, or if you want to use this type of data for marine spatial planning, then this workshop will be of interest to you.
