AusSeabed – NOAA OCS – UNH CCOM/JHC workshop at GA

We are excited to welcome new international collaborators to AusSeabed: the University of New Hampshire Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Coast Survey. Giuseppe Masetti (CCOM) and Tyanne Faulkes (NOAA) have done extensive work developing open-source bathymetry data management tools as part of the HydrOffice research framework. They will be hosted at Geoscience Australia from 17 June to 8 July.

Tyanne and Giuseppe will run a workshop at Geoscience Australia from Tuesday 18th June to Thursday 20th June. They will provide training for the Pydro and HydrOffice frameworks, give live demonstrations, and get into the nuts and bolts of the software architecture. Based on learnings from the workshop and the expertise of all participants, the last session of the workshop will focus on planning the best way forward in developing the QA/QC component of the AusSeabed Data Hub.

The workshop is open to any interested parties and is particularly aimed at expert seabed mappers and software developers.  A detailed agenda is available here. If you aren’t already coming but would like to, please contact Kim Picard via AusSeabed@ga.gov.au.
