At the UKHO, handling marine data is at the core of what we do. Each year we receive wide-ranging information from across the globe - so we've developed a set of principles to guide us on how we should manage our data.
Meetups are a great way of sharing challenges, processes and solutions with other organisations. In June, we held a meetup on software testing with our government partners to discuss test automation practices.
GDS' Data Science Accelerator Programme helps people in the public sector develop their data science skills. Read about UKHO's Software Engineer Ciaran Evans' project as part of the programme.
Our oceans are critical to so many aspects of our day-to-day lives, but how do we unlock their full economic potential? The key lies in accurate, comprehensive marine geospatial data.
Creating a gender balance across tech teams is a challenge that needs to be addressed. As part of International Women's Day, Sharon Lewis talks about how our Women's Network is working to create parity across our own teams at the UKHO.

We work with a range of data suppliers to ensure our charts contain the latest safety information. One of these suppliers is the mariners themselves, sending crowdsourced information via our H-Note App.
Test automation is part of our core engineering practices at the UKHO. We blend traditional manual testing with automated testing to help deliver real value to our customers.
Part of the value of geospatial data lies in how easy it is to discover, access and use - this was the topic for our first workshop as part of the Geospatial Commission.
