ENHD Achieves Milestone with Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) Migration

In a significant move towards the 2030 vision, the Egyptian Navy Hydrographic Department (ENHD) has successfully migrated to the cutting-edge Hydrographic Production Database (HPD). This milestone marks the second phase of the transition plan, shifting from products to information as a service.

The two-phase project involved:

  1. Production Resources Deployment: Configuring the production environment with Oracle Linux OS, Oracle Database installation, and monitoring and control systems.
  2. Training and Consultancy: Hosted CARIS HPD training and consultancy covering Oracle Database system administration, HPD server setup, migration processes, and data management.

Key Benefits of the HPD:

  1. Smooth Transition: Effortless shift from S-57 folio to S-101 folio.
  2. Dual Fuel Folios: Streamlined processing and management of ENHD’s dual fuel folios.
  3. Rescheme Project: Consistent transition of S-57 ENCs into seamless gridded ENCs.
  4. Enhanced Bathymetric Contouring: Production of High Density ENCs with improved bathymetric contouring.

The Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) not only serves as a crucial source for ENHD’s Marine Data Products (MDPs) but also plays an essential role in developing and maintaining the Hydro-Spatial Database. This upgrade enhances ENHD’s capability to manage hydrographic data, ensuring improved production efficiency and compliance with international standards as a National Hydrographic Office.
