IHO World Hydrography Day 21 June 2016

This Tuesday, 21st June 2016, the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) celebrates World Hydrography Day. This is an annual event taking place on the 21st June each year. World Hydrography Day is the opportunity to increase public awareness of the vital role that hydrography plays in everyone’s life. The theme for this year’s World Hydrography Day, which is also the 95th anniversary of the establishment of the IHO, is:

“Hydrography – the key to well managed seas and waterways”

World Hydrography Day 21 June 2016 - Valeport The aim of the theme: This theme intends to focus the global communities attention on the fundamental importance of hydrography and our knowledge of the shape, nature and depth of the seafloor as a fundamental requirement for the proper, safe, sustainable and cost effective use of the world’s seas, oceans and waterways.

The best use of limited knowledge. The theme also provides the opportunity to highlight the fact that while there are significant gaps in our knowledge, most hydrographic offices manage, or have access to the most comprehensive hydrographic data that exists for each country and that they are increasingly making this data available for the widest possible use as part of developing national spatial data infrastructures, in addition to publishing charts for safety of navigation.

The theme will also enable all stakeholders involved in hydrography to highlight the significance and importance of their activities. These could include, but are not limited to, the support of safety of navigation, protection of the marine environment, coastal zone management, marine spatial data infrastructures, defence, resource exploration, and all other components of the blue economy.

The work and contribution of hydrographers.

The World Hydrography Day 2016 theme will enable the work of all the world’s hydrographers - whether from the public or the private sector, to be highlighted and related to the increasing public and political awareness of the importance of the seas and waterways to everyone’s lives. The theme will also enable all stakeholders involved in hydrography to highlight the significance and importance of their activities. These could include, but are not limited to, the support of safety of navigation, protection of the marine environment, coastal zone management, marine spatial data infrastructures, defence, resource exploration, and all other components of the blue economy.
