CherSoft is pleased to announce the successful completion of an eighteen-month delivery of the CherSoft Tidal Data Base (TdB) and integration with the CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) for the French Hydrographic Office, Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine (SHOM).

Through this geospatial infrastructure project, CARIS and CherSoft will deliver to SHOM a database management system that will provide better access to its navaid, tidal and bathymetric databases while achieving improved information processing from data collection to archiving.

“Working with CherSoft enabled us to quickly meet the need identified by SHOM to include tidal components in this project,” said Geerten Blessing, Managing Director of CARIS BV. “We are delighted with the results achieved through teaming with CherSoft to deliver this comprehensive TdB solution”.

The delivery marks a significant juncture in the CherSoft Team’s growth strategy as they look to new partners and international clients to globally develop their market leading tidal solutions and marine navigation services.

Simon Salter, CherSoft director and founder said, “the TdB delivery to SHOM confirms the inherent functionality of the database and highlights the professional standing of the CherSoft team. CherSoft is very pleased to have been selected by CARIS as the best company to provide this and to assist in the developing the production capabilities of SHOM. We are all looking forward to a continuing relationship with CARIS and further supporting SHOM in the future”.
