NOAA Navigation Industry Days 2015

bannerSpatial View of Chart Updates and Notice to Mariners (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA has traditionally released continual maintenance source only when there was a new edition of a chart. Learn how we now release continual maintenance source on chart updates.

Contact: marc.higgins@noaa.gov

NOAA ENC Online (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA has 1,138 electronic navigational charts, available for industry use.  With NOAA's new digital formatting, client applications have a new array of possibilities.  Learn how NOAA ENC data can be used in custom mobile and web apps.

Contact: leland.snyder@noaa.gov

High Resolution Seafloor Data and Precision Navigation (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA collects and archives very high detail data from our hydrographic surveys.  However, the format of traditional nautical charts mean that much of this detail is not able to be displayed.  Learn how to access this detailed data and about NOAAs efforts to include more of this information on future products.

Contact: rick.brennan@noaa.gov

Topo/Bathy Lidar and Shoreline Updates (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA updates nautical charts using national seashore and alongside features (including shallow-water bathymetry) collected from the National Geodetic Survey.  Learn how to access these GIS-ready vector and raster products, which include coastal bathymetry, topography, and traditional coastal imagery.

Contact: mike.aslaksen@noaa.gov

Data Visualization (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA partners with the University of New Hampshire to develop the "next generation" tools for collecting, processing, and visualizing ocean data.  Learn about many of these tools, including advanced techniques in 3-D data visualization.

Tides and Current-Station Observations and Predictions (Presentation | Summary)
Many application use NOAA's tide and current predictions and observations.  Learn about how to access the latest observations and the harmonic constituents for tide and current predictions.

Coastal HF Radar (Presentation | Summary)
Learn about how NOAA and its partners maintain a network of current-measuring radars along many parts of the U.S. coastline.

Sea Surface Temperature (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA satellites measure sea surface temperature in large ocean areas.  Learn about how this data is being used for a variety of activities as well as methods for accessing this data.

Contact: eileen.maturi@noaa.gov

Hydrodynamic Models (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA makes continuous models of tides and currents in all coastal areas, updating three-day predictions every six hours.  Learn about how NOAA is developing new methods of distributing these models for public use.

Contact: jesse.feyen@noaa.gov

Weather Data (Presentation | Summary)
NOAA weather data (observations, models, radar, and forecasts) is as critical for safety on the water as on land.   Learn about which data is available and how to access it.
