Workshop on data from hydrographic surveying – potential applications in research and marine management

8 december, 2017 @ 10:00 f m - 3:00 e m

The aim of this workshop is to get an updated overview of the national activities related to hydrographic surveying, and the potential use of data in research and marine management. Further, identification of obstacles for resource efficiency for wider application of available data, including access to the data and which type and format of related data that are requested from the different stakeholders. The workshop is funded by Chalmers Area of Advance Transport.

12:00  Lunch
13:00  Discussion in smaller groups
Data needs from different competent authorities?
Data needs from research?
Obstacles today to use data?
Which data are today stored, how are they stored, and are there additional data not stored today that could be of potential interest in the future?
14:15   Report back on outcome from discussions and suggestions on next steps to in-crease data availability and resource efficiency (coffee served during the discussion)
