CARIS, the developer of geomatics software for hydrographic and marine industries, Canada has announced a workshop series called Ping to Chart World Tour 2006. This World Tour will be a unique series of five-day hands-on CARIS software training workshops that cover the workflow of hydrographic information from the echo sounder “ping” through to the production and distribution of the “chart”.
At each of the tour stops (including Australia, China, Chile, Denmark, India and Malaysia), CARIS will cover topics such as Multibeam Processing, Compilation and Management of Source Bathymetry and Database-driven Hydrographic Data Management, Product Creation and Distribution. Cutting-edge industry concepts like Combined Uncertainty and Bathymetry Estimation (CUBE) as well as one-feature-one-time data management will be explored to highlight the efficiencies that are now available.
The World Tour will be specifically relevant to Data Processors, Cartographers, Data Centre Supervisors, Operations Managers and others seeking an understanding of hydrographic workflows. A basic understanding of hydrography is considered useful but not essential.
