World Hydrography Day Seminar & Dinner

'Mapping Our Seas And Oceans - More Important Than Ever'

The Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute in conjunction with the Australasian Hydrographic Society will be 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:

  • LiDAR deployment from boat – links with all of the other SSSI Commissions, infrastructure, environmental monitoring;

  • ROV operations – links to engineers, infrastructure inspection, environmental science;

  • Feature detection using Sonar, Magnetometer – links to pipeline survey, ports and harbour navigational safety, UXO (Unexploded Ordnance);

  • Depiction and modelling of bathymetry Bathy – links to GIS;

  • The land/sea interface and the linkages to the vertical datum and mapping;

  • Drone work – links to remote sensing; etc

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.


World Hydrography Day Seminar: 09:00 to 17:00 ACST

World Hydrography Day Dinner: 19:00 to 23:00 ACST


CALL FOR PAPERS

The title of this event is Mapping our Seas and Oceans, More important than ever. The title hopes to attract insightful presentations that are related to:

  • capability and best practice business models;
  • new data acquisition technologies, including innovative supplementary data gathering and data maximizing such as crowd-sourced bathymetry (volunteered geographic data) and satellite-derived bathymetry;
  • existing data services and information requirements;
  • software solutions;
  • governance and organisational development frameworks;
  • operational protocols and logistics;
  • case studies;
  • LiDAR deployment from boat, which links with all of the other SSSI Commissions;
  • ROV operations, which links to engineers;
  • depiction and modeling of bathymetry Bathy, which links to GIS;
  • The land/sea interface and the linkages to the vertical datum and mapping;
  • drone work, which links to remote sensing; etc.

Authors, who are intending to submit an oral presentation for Mapping Our Seas And Oceans, More Important Than Ever, need to lodge their interest and name of their presentation and abstract as soon as possible to John Maschke at swp@ahs.asn.au and maschkejw@gmail.com and pass for information to Imogen Craig at rom.sa@sssi.org.au. The abstract should be no more than 250 words and submission template. Papers should be submitted via email and should not be more than 2000-3000 words in length. Authors will receive notification by email of the acceptance of their presentation.

For those presenters that are accepted, presentation times must no greater than 20 minutes in length, except for those that are selected as major or keynote presentations that will be of 30-40 minutes in length.

Any enquiries on the call for presentations, abstracts, and program please contact John Maschke via the above email address or via John's mobile 0424 094 546.

Email rom.sa@sssi.org.au to receive the abstract submission template


CALL FOR SPONSORS

As you know, sponsorship is an ideal way to prominently position your organisation as a key player in the NT Spatial Industry, and to increase the recognition of your brand to this sector.

It is an opportunity to communicate your organisational marketing message in this forum that may lead to a continued relationship with SSSI NT events in the future.

Your sponsorship or exhibit will bring opportunities to:

  • network with delegates
  • interact with influential decision makers in local organisations or agencies
  • enhance your corporate image and brand, and
  • showcase your products or services to an industry specific audience, maximising potential sales.

Email rom.sa@sssi.org.au to receive the sponsorship prospectus
