Hydrography is the science of measuring and description of the physical features of oceans, seas, coastal areas, lakes and rivers such as bottom depth, currents and waves, with the prediction of their change over the time, in other words it looks into the ocean to see what the sea floor looks like. It purpose is safety assurance of navigation and all other marine activities, including economic development, security and defense, scientific research, and environmental protection.

The Importance of Hydrography

In addition to supporting safe and efficient navigation of ships and produce navigation charts, nowadays hydrography are used in many applications:

  • oil and gas industry
  • resource exploitation - fishing, minerals
  • environmental protection and management
  • maritime boundary delimitation
  • national marine spatial data infrastructures
  • recreational boating
  • maritime defense and security
  • tsunami flood and inundation modelling
  • coastal zone management
  • marine science
