Description 
Summary

The data comes from both MB and SB measurements. The results of these soundings are processed into survey charts, depth difference charts, volumes and cross profiles. The method used for survey and data processing is dependent on the purpose and the targeted users of the soundings. The Flemish Hydrography’s survey charts and nautical charts are used to ensure safe navigation, to help perform infrastructural works for coastal defence, to guide dredging works, etc.
