DHN Hosted Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure Workshop in Brazil
Attendees from the South West Atlantic Hydrographic Commission (Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay) and representatives from Guatemala, Chile and Colombia successfully completed an International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) capacity building workshop on Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI), hosted by the Brazilian hydrographic office Diretoria de Hidrografia e Navegaçao (DHN).
Thirteen students spent five days in the city of Niteroi, Brazil, 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.
