The CIDCO course in hydrographic surveying addresses all topics of hydrography, from geodesy, positioning, underwater acoustics and bathymetry, tides and water levels, to hydrographic data processing. As such it is a comprehensive programme in hydrography, which delivers a high quality and innovative educational content in both foundation sciences and hydrographic practice at sea.
The course has been designed to meet the international standards of competence at Category B, as described in the S-5 publication of the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO).
CIDCO is continually evolving through learning of new methods and uses of new tools. The organization is at the heart of the marine environment of the marine geomatics sector by its organization of courses, training and workshops with the scientific community and CIDCO employees.
