Korea Hosts Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure Workshop
Attendees from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand successfully completed an International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) capacity building workshop on Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI), hosted by the Korea Hydrographic and Oceanographic Administration (KHOA).
Fourteen students spent five days in the city of Incheon, Republic of Korea, learning theoretical concepts and SDI best practices from the UK organization OceanWise and practical applications on data modeling, database management and interoperability from CARIS. Hands-on exercises, utilizing the CARIS Bathy DataBASE, HPD and Spatial Fusion Enterprise suites of software, reinforced the theoretical elements learned earlier in the week.
Feedback from the attendees was very positive and many stated they would use the knowledge gained back at their respective hydrographic offices.
