Teledyne CARIS, a Teledyne Technologies company, and the Danish Geodata Agency (DGA)have announced the successful completion of a project to implement a new depth data management system at the Danish Hydrographic Office, part of the DGA.

‘’DGA is a dynamic, data-centered, industry-leading agency that provides high resolution, quality data products. Their focus on automation for data storage and processing situates Denmark as a forward-leaning country,” said Tami Francksen, product manager at Teledyne CARIS. “The challenge of migrating archives to a depth-management system has facilitated great discussion and idea sharing with our team."

Project scope

The scope of the project programme included delivery of CARIS Bathy DataBASE, migration tools, system configuration and implementation. The project also delivered a range of training and consultancy.

The depth data management system provides the Danish Hydrographic Office efficient storage and management of depth data while supporting the current and future requirements, both internally and externally.

The full implementation of the new depth data management system spanned over 18 months.

Yvonne Morville Petersen, head of function at Danish Geodata Agency – Geodatastyrelsen, said: “With the new depth data management system we are ready to handle the exponential growth in data volumes acquired with modern survey techniques, as well as to respond to the increasing customer demand for bathymetric data and diverse derived products. This is an important milestone for DGA towards digital transformation as a modern Hydrographic Office."
