Hydrography Geospatial Data Management and Production System for Malaysia

Posted by Caris on 20th January 2014

As the national hydrographic and charting authority in Malaysia, the Hydrographic Directorate of the Royal Malaysian Navy (HDRMN) has a mandate to collect measurements using modern techniques, and provide adequate and timely hydrographic information to support safety of navigation, national development, defense and security, and numerous other activities related to the use of Malaysia's marine environment.

In order to achieve these goals in the most efficient manner, CARIS and local Alliance Partner OKENOS Sdn. Bhd. were selected to implement a Hydrographic Geospatial Data Management and Production System (HGDMPS) at the National Hydrographic Centre (NHC). The enterprise GIS, comprised of Bathy DataBASE and HPD, will allow NHC to increase organizational capability for the management of elevation datasets, production of multiple paper and electronic chart types from a single database source, and improve the sharing of spatial information through a Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI).
