About the seminar
Join the UKHO and Teledyne Caris experts during the IHO Assembly to hear how we can support you in the implementation of the new S-100 data standards, and be part of the discussion as we demonstrate these data standards in action.
Our Countdown to S-100: Data standards in action seminar, including a networking lunch, will take place on Tuesday 2 May, 13:10 - 14:10, at:
IHO Assembly, Grimaldi Forum, 10 Avenue Princesse Grace, 98000, Monaco
The seminar will be introduced by UK National Hydrographer and Deputy Chief Executive of the UK Hydrographic Office, RAdm Rhett Hatcher, followed by a joint presentation from Head of Digital Delivery at UKHO, James Cooke, and Director of Business Development at Teledyne Geospatial, Peter Schwarzberg.
Be part of the discussion as we demonstrate the new S-100 data standards in action, and how we can support you throughout the roadmap of S-100 implementation.
There will be an opportunity for Q&A during the session, followed by a networking lunch.
Why join us?
The International Hydrographic Organization’s S-100 data standards will greatly enhance the portrayal of the maritime environment. S-100 will provide a coherent framework for high-fidelity maritime data applications, which are fundamental to the shift from Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) to digital geo-information systems. Those systems will be capable of receiving and processing information on a range of applications, including imagery and gridded data, high-density bathymetry, dynamic tidal monitoring, and surface currents.
Notwithstanding its benefits, the implementation of the new S-100 data standards alongside existing industry challenges can be difficult to manage.
Join our Countdown to S-100: Data standards in action seminar to hear more about the practicalities of S-100 and how we can support you throughout the roadmap of its implementation. There will be the opportunity to provide feedback on your own involvement with S-100, and to see a demonstration of S-100 product in application, including the conversion of S-57 to S-101.
We welcome the opportunity to openly discuss the challenges we all face and how, by working together, we can all appreciate the benefits from the implementation of S-100.
