The 2017 East Asia Hydrographic Commission Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (EAHC MSDI) Symposium hosted by KHOA took place in Seoul, Republic of Korea from 22 to 23 November 2017. It was organized as a preparation of the EAHC-MSDI Working Group (WG) and was attended by 40 participants from WG members, namely Japan, Malaysia, Republic of Korea and Thailand, IHO MSDIWG, and observers from industry as expert contributors. Mr. LEE Dong-jae, Director General of KHOA, delivered a welcoming remarks, followed by congratulatory remarks by RAdm. Dato’ Fadzilah bin Mohd Salleh, Chair of EAHC, and Mr. Sebastian Carisio, Vice Chair of IHO MSDIWG. There were nine informative presentations in perspectives of East Asia, S-100, UN-GGIM and MSDI in general.
The IHO MSDIWG invited KHOA to produce a video based on the IHO Publication C-17 as one of the ways to enhance the understanding of MSDI. KHOA introduced a draft video and the Symposium discussed areas of improvements. It was recommended to complete the video in a way that it can be used by the whole IHO community. The amended video will be played at the 9th IHO MSDIWG meeting in Brazil, January 2018 for feedback from WG members and other stakeholders.
We would like to thank the participants for their active contribution to the Symposium.
