Category "B" Programme in Nautical Cartography

The Republic of Korea (ROK) sponsors Nautical Cartography programme recognized at Category "B" level by the FIG-IHO-ICA International Board on Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors and Nautical Cartographers (IBSC).

Summary of the Programme

The Programme consists of four Modules and one Specialism.

A certificate recognising the successful completion of a Category B accredited course in nautical cartography will be awarded to the students that successfully complete the programme.

  • Module 1 represents the foundation module of the programme. It introduces students to the basics of marine data processing, chart work and cartography, building the foundation for Module 2.
  • Module 2 Part A includes extensive practical exercises, assignments, hands-on instruction and continuous testing of newly acquired skills.
Module 1 - Foundations of Marine Geospatial Information
Unit 1 Introduction to Charts and ENCs
Unit 2 Chart Compilation Concepts
Unit 3 ENC Data Concepts
Unit 4 Product Maintenance – Ways of Updating
Module 2 Part A - Marine Data Assessment, Compilation and Production
Unit 1 Chart Design and Planning (Chart Scheming)
Unit 2 Compiling Topography & Coastline
Unit 3 Compiling Bathymetry, including contouring
Unit 4 Compilation of other features
Unit 5 Product Finishing – ENCs and Paper Charts
  • Module 2 Part A (revision) and Part B include extensive practical exercises, assignments, hands-on instruction and continuous testing of newly acquired skills.
Module 2 Part A (revision) and Part B - Marine Data Assessment, Compilation and Production
Unit 6 Evaluating Bathymetry (Advanced)
Unit 7 QC & Workflow
Unit 8 Complex Compilation
Unit 9 Product Finishing: Raster Charts & Printing
  • Module 3 contains the legal and scientific elements of the programme, including geology, oceanography and maritime law.
  • Module 4 represents a self-contained course on Marine Spatial Data Infrastructures (MSDI), including the wider uses of hydrographic data with practical assessments to ensure comprehension.
  • Specialism 1(Remote Sensing for Hydrographers) is based on the practical use of satellite and aerial imagery for chart compilation and cartography.
