Contributing CSB Data

Participants can provide CSB data contributions to the IHO’s Data Centre for Digital Bathymetry (DCDB) through organizations, companies or universities that serve as data aggregators and / or liaisons. These “Trusted Nodes” can help supply data logging equipment or software, provide technical support to vessels, download data from data loggers, aggregate collected data and facilitate data transfer. The DCDB will help identify the best-suited “trusted node” type for you.

Contributed data should include depth, position and time stamp. While additional information is encouraged, data does not need to include vessel name, IMO number or anything else with the vessel identification prior to uploading to the IHO DCDB database. By contributing data to the IHO DCDB, the provider will not be held liable for the data submitted.

Data flow from vessels, through Trusted Nodes, to the DCDB.
