The Hydrography Commission has a strong affiliation with Australasian Hydrographic Society and FIG Commission 4 (Hydrography).
Relationship with SSSI Regions
Members of the Commission are expected to take an active part in regional Institute activities, particularly CPD activities.
The Commission maintains close links with those Australasian educational institutions offering tertiary hydrographic surveying qualifications and with the FIG/IHO/ICA International Board on Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors and Nautical Cartographers to ensure that appropriate educational opportunities are available to members and students wishing to pursue a hydrographic surveying career, and that the qualifications being offered meet the requirements of international best practice.
The Australasian Hydrographic Society is the South West Pacific and South East Asian regional focus for those interested in hydrography and related sciences.
The International Hydrographic Organization is an intergovernmental consultative and technical organization that was established in 1921 to support safety of navigation and the protection of the marine environment.
