The Hydrographic Office of the Polish Navy (HOPN), responsible for navigation, hydrography, oceanography and meteorology of Polish waters, is making the move to a database driven production solution with CARIS HPD.
HOPN has in recent years gained experience with CARIS’ database solutions when implementing CARIS Bathy DataBASE for the management of their bathymetric data. HPD will enable HOPN to update product-specific features and make customizations while maintaining the source data, CARIS said.
CARIS’ Peter Schwarzberg, Marine Solutions Manager, commented: “I still remember performing HOPN’s initial installation, setup and training sessions when they acquired their first CARIS licenses all those years ago.”
He added: “I had only recently joined CARIS and for me this was a fantastic opportunity to spend time with the software and the knowledgeable and friendly staff at HOPN. It has been great following the hydrographic office over all these years and it’s fantastic to see how they have evolved.”
A series of visits by CARIS consultants will take place over the first quarter of the year for training and consulting to aid in implementing HPD fully into the HOPN chart production workflow.
