I would like to express my heartfelt welcome to all of you visitors to our webpage! Since its establishment as the Hydrographic Division under the Operations Department of the ROK Navy in 1949, we at the Korea Hydrographic and Oceanographic Administration have been doing our utmost in efficient use and development of our waters.
Particularly with the momentum of relocating a new government office building in a marine city Busan, we strive in big strides to become the top-notch comprehensive maritime information agency in the Republic of Korea. It is said that “The country’s future depends on the sea”. This indicates the importance of the ocean.
We will take the lead in realizing people’s dreams and happiness through the sea.
Please take a warm interest in and support our efforts.
