About the Event
Mr Andrew Hinton will give a talk on Marine Cartography in UK Waters on Mon 14 Nov 2022 starting at 18.00hrs and consist of a 40min presentation, followed by a 20min Question & Answer (Q&A) session.
Andrew joined the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) in 1986, after working as a Surveyor for RACAL Decca. In the 36 years working at the UKHO he has been in charge of a variety of charting regions including SE Asia, the Middle East and latterly as the Geographic and Technical Lead for England’s south and east coasts, a post he held for nearly 20 years before partially retiring in 2021. Since going part time, he has been heavily involved in rescheming the GB Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC) coverage in UK waters which is to follow a more gridded system in the future.
His talk will go through what makes a navigational chart different from a land map, differences between a paper chart and ENC, the dynamic nature of the marine environment around the UK, mobile sea areas, and how the UKHO keeps its users updated and the particular issues it faces when compiling a chart from survey data.
The presentation will begin prompt at 18.00hrs and will be recorded, so that it can be posted at a later date onto the DSA website.
Attendees are asked to login to Zoom using the invitation hyperlink below at least 5mins before the start time. The Zoom meeting area will be opened at 17.50hrs
Attendees are also asked to ensure that they identify themselves with First Name / Surname on their Zoom accounts, so that they can be clearly recognised when participating in the Q&A.
Microphones and Webcams are asked to be switched off for the period of the presentation, with microphones only switched back on when called to ask a question in the Q&A.
