Marispace-X research featured in latest edition of the renowned International Hydrographic Review

Peer-reviewed IHR article outlines new directions in maritime big data processing and analysis of sensor data

The research team of Marispace-X partner successfully published an impactful article titled “Marispace-X: Digitalizing the Ocean“ in the latest edition of the renowned International Hydrographic Review (IHR) of the International Hydrographic Organization. You can access the article here:

Future applications for hydrographic surveys and Marispace-X use cases

In their article the author's provide an overview of the envisioned Marispace-X digital infrastructure, a decentralized maritime data ecosystem, followed by exemplary applications for hydrographic surveys and two of the use cases, Offshore Wind and Munitions In The Sea as defined in the Marispace-X project.

These exemplary applications are related to data management, sharing and processing services that can be performed on a cloud infrastructure. The authors explain that this digital infrastructure should simplify data handling of all the different data types and formats that exist in the maritime domain.

The International Hydrographic Review

The International Hydrographic Review (IHR) is a renowned international journal publishing peer-reviewed papers on all aspects of hydrography and associated subjects, ranging from the latest technical developments to history. It was first published in 1921 and since then has been published regularly. In 2009 the IHR became a web-based publication, with two editions a year and an annual printed copy of these two editions distributed to the IHO Member States. Access to digital editions is open to all and free of charge.

As a peer-reviewed publication, all submissions to the International Hydrographic Review including the article on Marispace-X, are rigorously evaluated for accuracy, scientific merit, and relevance to the community.

The International Hydrographic Organization

The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) is an intergovernmental organization that works to ensure all the world's seas, oceans and navigable waters are surveyed and charted. Established in 1921, it coordinates the activities of national hydrographic offices and promotes uniformity in nautical charts and documents. It issues survey best practices, provides guidelines to maximize the use of hydrographic survey data and develops hydrographic capabilities in Member States.
