Invitation to participate in EMODnet Bathymetry Workshop at Oceanology International 2018

Version imprimable de cet article

Since 2008 the EMODnet Bathymetry portal (www.emodnet-bathymetry.eu), involving an increasing partnership, has been very successful in providing overview and access to available bathymetric survey datasets and generating a harmonised digital bathymetry for Europe’s sea basins. Partners are hydrographic services, research institutes, authorities, and private organisations.
The EMODnet Bathymetry portal and EMODnet Digital Terrain Model (DTM) are highly popular and used by an increasing group of users from government, science and industry as it clearly provides the best publicly available gridded harmonised digital bathymetry model for the European marine waters.

Very good progress is being made with generating an improved and higher resolution EMODnet DTM, which will be released summer 2018 integrating much more recent data sets and refining areas with known anomalies.

At the coming Oceanology International 2018 an EMODnet Bathymetry Workshop is organized. This will give overview and demonstrations of the current portal and interactive services for e.g. viewing and downloading the EMODnet DTM. The approach and progress of the ongoing development for the improved DTM and additional portal functionalities will be highlighted. In addition there will be an open discussion on extra user requirements and possible extra data contributions.

We kindly invite interested persons to participate in the Workshop which will take place at 13th March 2016 between 14:00 and 17.00 hours in Gallery Meeting Room 2 in the Excel Exhibition centre. Please indicate your participation by completing the Doodle with name, affiliation and email address :
