Supporting future requirements
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.

   - 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, Teledyne CARIS.
   - The challenge of migrating archives to a depth-management system has facilitated great discussion and idea sharing with our team. Teledyne CARIS looks forward to growing with DGA to further support their vision and evolving needs for many years to come.

An important milestone
The full implementation of the new depth data management system spanned over 18 months.
   - During this intensive project period, CARIS has proven to be a very pleasant and professional partner for the project team with emphasis on supporting the implementation of a full system complying with our requests and needs of the future depth management. Not only was the delivery of service met, the solution was also developed based on a proactive cooperation in an open-minded atmosphere which allowed development of the solution with the best fit to DGA's needs for the future, said Yvonne Morville Petersen, Head of Function, Danish Geodata Agency – Geodatastyrelsen.
   - 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.
