World Hydrography Day Seminar and AGM

Dunedin, NZ - Thursday 6th July 2017

Planning is underway for this event. We did not run a Seminar Day in 2016 so we should get some great presentations and a chance to socialize this year.

NZIS HPS & SSSI Hydrography Commission

Seminar - Wellington, 17 March 2017

Organiser: NZIS Hydrographic Professional Stream and SSSI Hydrography Commission

Venue: Miramar Links Conference and Function Centre, Wellington

Presentations and an open forum to discuss hydrography/institute/certification matters or other hydro related matters.

The scope of presentations is fairly broad but would ideally cover areas of hydrography you are currently involved in that would be of interest to a wider audience or hydrography issues that you feel need to be discussed including any changes to the regulatory environment.

It is planned that this will become an annual event in the hydrographic surveying calendar, ideally rotated between North and South Island venues.

Please forward all abstracts and 20min presentation proposals to Simon Ironside:
