CHILEAN NAVY HYDROGRAPHIC AND OCEANOGRAPHIC SERVICE

World data centers and data management-related institutions have developed a series of initiatives in order to spread and publish their database features in a free and accessible way. These types of initiatives bring the users closer to the type of available information, and improve the fluency and the clarity on their requirements.

As part of the 2012 Hydrographic and Oceanographic center (CENDHOC) upgrading and improvement activities, work has been done on the generation of a GIS platform to administrate and spread, in terms of metadata, the different Hydrographic databases available for their exchange.

This application is available from November, 13 2012 and can be viewed on http://www.shoa.cl/n_cendhoc/index.html
