About the event:
In collaboration with BEIS, the UK Hydrographic Office has been directed by the Government’s Geospatial Commission to coordinate the creation of an evidence base and series of recommendations for consideration in their forthcoming National Geospatial Strategy. After successfully completing the initial Discovery Phase workshops, which focused on diagnosing the obstacles and opportunities we all face, we will now be conducting this final workshop to understand the potential solutions and recommendations for inclusion in the Marine Geospatial Evidence Base. With so many stakeholders in the UK’s rich marine geospatial community, we are keen that all have an opportunity to contribute.
Marine Geospatial Data is any information in the ocean space that can be attributed with a location and it is widely accepted that nearly every activity undertaken in the ocean fundamentally relies on one or more of its numerous forms. These activities stretch from enabling shipping and the innovation of maritime autonomy; to offshore energy, fisheries and environmental research; to legal delimitation, finance and infrastructure planning. With the constant development of new technologies and the increasing reliance on our ocean to meet the needs of today’s fast-changing world, a coordinated approach from right across the UK’s diverse Marine Geospatial Community will be essential.
