The rapid changes in technology created by both the electronic and information ages have generated tremendous forces on the style and procedures of managing electronic hydrographic data acquisition and processing. This technological force is shaping the future direction for hydrographic information management within the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Hydrographic Office.
