  • Data processing, data presentation, and data archival and retrieval
  • Other general factors to be considered might include geodetic survey methods, hydrographic survey methods, computer systems design, acceptable vessel modifications, safe vessel operation, and regional knowledge of survey conditions

Learning Objective:

  • Guidance in performing hydrographic surveys for engineering and construction
  • Planning survey coverage
