HydroFest 2016

THSiS_LogoLast week Geomatic Solutions attended the HydroFest event hosted by the The Hydrographic Society in Scotland (THSiS) at Aberdeen University.

HydroFest aims to provide an understanding of the aspects that the geomatic and hydrographic surveying industries are involved in the offshore oil and gas industry. An overview of the exploration, development, production and decommissioning of the Goldeneye field allowed a framework for the different areas and points where geospatial data is involved in the project lifespan to be highlighted.

The event was engaging and covered a broad range of topics related to hydrographic surveying and the associated geospatial data. The event was attended by a range of professionals from the hydrographic survey industry and students from associated courses, which lead to some interesting discussions in between the presentations.

Further details about the event can be found on their website and the flyer can be downloaded here.
