World Hydrography DayPublished: 21/06/2020 - 12:47
The IHO has released a new video for World Hydrography Day which highlights the relationship between hydrography and autonomous technologies. This includes aerial, surface and underwater survey drones as well as autonomous ships.
It is estimated that only 18% of the ocean has been mapped so far. Yet the marine environment is changing before we get to fully know it. Autonomous vehicles offer a cornucopia of possibilities to increase our knowledge. They can be used to reach remote or dangerous areas and are very efficient at gathering information. In turn this up-to-date and accurate digital data can be used to develop autonomous shipping which is safe and sustainable.
