Marine Data Management Awareness Course

09:30 – 17:00 | Tuesday 16 October 2018
IMarEST HQ – 1 Birdcage Walk, London 

Data is expensive to collect and needs to be treated as an extremely valuable corporate resource. However, history shows that a majority of organisations rarely, if ever, manage it effectively! With data volumes growing exponentially each year, ‘Big Data’ is now presenting a real challenge and the need to consider ‘data-centric’ operational processes and workflows has never been greater.

This course shows how effective data management can improve your organisation’s efficiency in data acquisition, storage and analysis. It will ensure you understand data use with respect to corporate risk, re-use, audit and traceability whilst at the same time minimising costs.

“The course provided a good broad overview about a structured data management system and data policy” Maik Weidt, Hydrographic Consultant, Geomatics Matters Ltd.
