What is hydrography?
Hydrography is the measurement of various physical characteristics of the oceans (or other waters) such as bottom depth, currents and waves. Although hydrographic surveys were traditionally carried out in order to produce navigation charts, nowadays such surveys are used in many applications from the oil and gas industry, to leisure activities and the fishing industry.
