SDB Day 2024 – Workshop at CHC, Canada

Canadian Hydrographic Conference 2024 - key visual

Join SDB Day on 27 May 2024 at CHC in Canada!

The Canadian Hydrographic Conference (CHC) will take place from 27 – 30 May 2024 in St. John’s, Newfoundland. This year’s conference motto is: “Unveiling our Blue Planet”.

On the first conference day, the 27th of May, EOMAP will host the “SDB Day”, an afternoon workshop dedicated to Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB). It will include applications, such as shallow water surveying or coastal monitoring, and feature use cases in the Arctic region.

The SDB Day workshop will take place from 1:30 to 4:30 pm in Room “Bannerman 3” and highlight these topics – while considering participants’ preferences:

Technology and Innovations

📍Concepts and methods of Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB)
📍Why Physics-based processing matters
📍Innovations: Cloud processing of SDB, Shoals and safety in navigation, understanding turbidity
📍What does SDB offer for Arctic regions?

Applications and Use Cases
For this part, notebooks are welcome, but not mandatory.

📍Demo tour of cloud processing solutions: SDB-Online and eoapp AQUA
📍Use cases from Greenland and other Arctic regions
📍Coastal Monitoring and assessment
📍Q & A

Conference talk on 29th May

On CHC Day 3 am during the “Satellite-Derived Bathymetry Session 2” we will showcase a fascinating bathymetry project in a Canadian Marine Protected Area.

In 2023, EOMAP cooperated in community-led bathymetric surveys and helped generate Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB) for Canadian coastal waters, using SDB-Online. This new web app enables users to create bathymetric charts within mouse clicks. The project is part of Canada’s Oceans Protection Plan, and empowers coastal communities to gather and utilize bathymetric data. Most of the communities involved lack detailed bathymetric data on the waters at their doorstep.

Join us at the conference or get in touch to learn more!
