The first international conference on Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB Day 2018) is now open for registration for the marine industry to discuss key issues on data generation and standardization. The Satellite Derived Bathymetry Technology and User Forum will be held on June 6 and 7, 2018 in Herrsching near Munich, Germany.
The depth of about 50% of the world’s coastal waters has never been directly measured and in many areas not even reliably estimated. Yet, there are many users who require current high-quality hydrographic information, highlighting the need to fill this data gap.
Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB) for hydrographic purposes provides cost-efficient and accurate water depth data for coastal waters using measurements from satellite-based earth observation (EO) sensors. As the use of this technology in applications such as safety of navigation, reconnaissance surveys, coastal zone management or hydrodynamic modeling is increasing, so is the demand to discuss current technological capabilities and suitable quality standards of the data.
The conference will bring together relevant global marine institutions, hydrographic offices, the marine industry, surveyors and Satellite Derived Bathymetry experts.
