Abstract
    The potential use of hydrographic information in the holdings of today’s HOs extends much further than safety of navigation. The challenge is to continue to supply high quality, safety related information with an increased update rate, simultaneously with making new uses of existing information and establishing requirements for the acquisition and gathering of new data. Evolving from Product Centric to Data Base Centric Work Processes is a way forward for an organisation that is seeking solutions to increase access to data holdings at the same time coping with an increasing amount of incoming source information and increased demands for higher update rates. New tools for data analysis might yield new information from already existing data and in turn provide input into the planning of new surveys. A key requirement here is accessibility to information/data not to mention knowledge of the existence of the data. The way forward to cope without a vast increase in the use of human resources is to change the internal processes in the organisation from the present product centric organisation to data base centric work processes and methods.
