The availability of various sensors and sophisticated technology providing digital data means that today’s hydrographers must attune to the idea that the final products should be available in a hydrographic database. This will facilitate accessing marine data in hydrographic information systems. Almost all institutions of higher learning that specialise in geomatics-engineering now tend to provide education in marine geographic information systems (GIS) and this is already reflected in the syllabus in M8 of the IHO Standards of Competence for Nautical Cartographers.
