Emergency Survey Toolkit for Naval Operations
1 Naval School, Alfeite, Portugal
ABSTRACT: In order to deliver the minimum safety conditions for movement of the ships towards restricted waters, urgent survey operations are required whenever we deal with natural disasters; unreliable chart information or uncharted areas requires. In recent years, there has been a huge development in positioning and survey technology. Simultaneously, charts production techniques and GIS software are easily accessible. In this circumstance, a research project was made in order to assess the possibility of developing existing capabilities of emergency hydrographic survey. The toolkit was designed to allow the swift production of usable bottom representation and survey of navigational aids, with a focus on navigational safety, rather than bottom contour accuracy.
