The Hydrographic Office at the Danish Geodata Agency presents this year's national report


Every year, the Hydrographic Office at the Danish Geodata Agency prepares a national report for IHO’s Regional Commissions. The report provides an overview of the most important maritime activities and initiatives in Danish and Greenlandic waters.

This week, the members of the Nordic Hydrographic Commision (NHC) met in Malmö, Sweden for their annual meeting. Here, the annual reports of the national Hydrographic Offices were presented, and each member state outlined activities and new initiatives within hydrography and the maritime field more broadly.

As the Danish hydrographic office, the Danish Geodata Agency, with input from colleagues from the Faroese Hydrographic Office, also had the pleasure of presenting the national report with an overview of initiatives and relevant hydrographic activities.

Besides the presentations the members discussed among other topics the implementation of the new S-100 Data Model for Digital Navigation, input to the next IHO Strategic Plan, and other strategic matters that the five Nordic countries, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland, have in common across their borders.

What is NHC? 
The Nordic Hydrographic Commission is a regional commission under the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), which meets once a year and consists of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland. The Commission provides input to the overall work of the IHO. The NHC is the oldest independent commission under IHO and the cooperation between the five Nordic countries provides a valuable platform for exchange of information.
