According to NCC report, on the occasion of World Oceans Day, the National Institute for Oceanography and Atmospheric Science, with the participation of other Marine Bodies, is holding a virtual meeting entitled Marine Data and Information in the Service of Maritime Development.
Dr. Ali Soltanpour, the manager of Hydrography and Tidal Affairs of NCC, added: "Due to the importance of the seas and oceans in 2008, the United Nations designated June 8 as World Oceans Day, and since then this day has been celebrated annually by maritime authorities in the world. On this occasion, on June 7, this year, a meeting will be held by the National Oceanographic Research Institute with the participation of other organizations. »
He added: "The purpose of this meeting is to get familiarized with the maritime bodies in charge of collecting marine data. Its main topics are marine data management, data and products sharing, new topics in data management at the national and international levels, and further interaction of maritime organizations.
With more than three decades of hydrographic activity and sea level monitoring and tidal modeling, the National Cartographic Center has a long history in data collection and marine studies in the country.
It is obvious that the establishment of marine spatial data infrastructure, similar to the existing spatial data infrastructure in the National Cartographic Center, due to the long experience of the NCC in this field, meets the needs of marine organizations and could remove existing obstacles in Data Sharing and Management.
"Registration for this meeting is free and the national sea level monitoring network belonging to NCC will be introduced to those who are interested.
