International Hydrographic Organisation, 1st Assembly 24th - 28th April 2017
The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) is the inter-governmental consultative and technical organization whose principal aim is to ensure that all the world's seas, oceans and navigable waters are adequately surveyed and charted.
The Organization has been based in the Principality of Monaco since 1921 where it provides the international standards for hydrography and nautical charting as well as ensures co-operation between countries in support of navigation safety at sea and the sustainable development of their maritime environment.
After nearly a century in Monaco, the IHO will enter its second century under a revised governance structure, with the 1st Session of the IHO Assembly taking place from 24 to 28 April 2017. Over 300 delegates representing its 85 Member States, together with representatives from international and non–governmental organizations and observers from other States and industry will meet in the Auditorium Rainier III in Monaco.
QPS will be represented and look forward to meeting you there. We have a joint stand with ESRI.
