In view of the increasing use of Satellite-Derived Bathymetry in various initiatives there is a growing demand to jointly discuss standards, data integration, handling uncertainties in the frame of these applications and international initiatives.
The first international Satellite-Derived Bathymetry Technology and User Forum 2018 offered a unique opportunity for hydrographic institutions, government and industry to discuss capabilities, data integration, requirements and quality standards.
The conference was held on June 6 and 7, 2018 in the Bavarian Lake District near Munich, Germany.
“Really liked the mix of industry, government and academics which made for some engrossing discussions.”
“Broad spectrum of use cases from different users”
“The variety of presentations covering science to applications and end-users perspectives”
“A lot of representatives from different regions/offices/institutes.”
