Welcome at Hydrographic Society Benelux

The society for everyone who works, follows an education or is interessed in Hydrography and related subjects.


The HSB organises on a regular basis interesting workshops for her members and other people who are interested. Here is some information about the next workshop.

Workshop: The Future of Hydrographic Data Processing.

Wednesday, October 26, 2016 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM
22 Europaplein
1078 GZ Amsterdam

During the coming Offshore & Energy exhibition in the RAI in Amsterdam at 25 and 26 October the Hydrographic Society Benelux will, like last year, organize a workshop.

The workshop can be attended by HSB members and visitors to Offshore Energy.

The future of hydrographic software will change considerably over the coming years.

We see the coming years autonomous and distance controlled systems take a larger role. But also the reuse of already existing data will become more important. We expect that the collection of data “In the field” shall change considerably and the acquisition of “Big Data” will grow. What will be the influence on the software, the operator of these systems and the handling of this data?

Important note!

You need also to register for Offshore Energy (it's at no cost) to access the event as this workshop is taking place within the Offshore Energy tradeshow: .

Therefore you have to pass several screens: you log in as “new visitor” and if you also came last year, you will be mailed a login code, otherwise you have to fill in the “registration form”. Be sure to select the HSB workshop. Most other workshops are not free of charge, so be careful to select the right one and that the bill mentions 0,00 EUR. Finally, you should get a “registration successful” message and be able to download your e-ticket.

Thank you!
