Na­tional Hy­dro­graphic Of­fice con­ducts train­ing course on data man­age­ment

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Muscat - Na­tional Hy­dro­graphic Of­fice of the Royal Navy of Oman (RNO) last week or­gan­ised a five-day course on data man­age­ment and in­fra­struc­ture for spa­tial data. The train­ing course was held at Park Inn by Radis­son Muscat, stated a press re­lease. The event was at­tended by a num­ber of high rank­ing of­fi­cers from RNO, in ad­di­tion to a num­ber of em­ploy­ees from the govern­ment in­sti­tu­tions.

The course was con­ducted by a num­ber of highly skilled train­ers in the field, un­der the pa­tron­age of Brig Gen Khamis bin Salim al Jabri, di­rec­tor gen­eral for Op­er­a­tions and Plans, RNO.

The course was held un­der the pa­tron­age of the Min­istry of De­fence and the Sul­tan’s Armed Forces in the field of de­vel­op­ment. It aimed at rais­ing aware­ness in the im­por­tance of spa­tial data in­fra­struc­ture (SDI) and the de­vel­op­ment of a broader per­spec­tive of joint ac­tion and co­op­er­a­tion among the rel­e­vant in­sti­tu­tions in the field.

It also sought to high­light the im­por­tance of ma­rine data in­for­ma­tion to in­te­grate spa­tial data, and pro­vide in­for­ma­tion along the coast­line to sup­port na­tional plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment.

The course in­cluded a num­ber of themes, such as the chal­lenges and key el­e­ments of SDI, in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, stan­dards and gov­er­nance data, as well as the best prac­tices of data man­age­ment and its role in en­sur­ing the suc­cess­ful im­ple­men­ta­tion of na­tional spa­tial data in­ter­faces.

The mech­a­nism for the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Na­tional Hy­dro­graphic Of­fice of Oman and other govern­ment en­ti­ties con­cerned with ma­rine data in en­hanc­ing ma­rine spa­tial data, were also in­cluded in the course, added the re­lease.

The ser­vices pro­vided by the Na­tional Hy­dro­graphic Of­fice in RNO re­lated to the col­lec­tion and anal­y­sis of ma­rine data and the pre­sen­ta­tion of the data by maps and other prod­ucts, are con­sid­ered as one of the pil­lars of the de­vel­op­ment of the Oman’s spa­tial data’s in­fra­struc­ture.

It un­doubt­edly con­trib­utes ef­fec­tively to na­tional de­vel­op­ment plans.
