Mariners will now be able to send hydrographic information directly to the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) via mobile devices, after the organisation introduced its new ADMIRALTY H-Note App.

The Hydrographic Note, or H-Note, has long been an important source of new hydrographic and navigational data for the UKHO, with seafarers submitting information using a hardcopy H-Note Form or a computer. The H-Note App now extends that ability to mobile devices, and includes additional elements of functionality.

Users will be able to submit their co-ordinates automatically using the device’s GPS, as well as photographs taken on the device. The data is then sent to the UKHO via e-mail, which can either take immediate action or decide whether to include the new information in updated charts and publications.

“The ADMIRALTY H-Note App is a more efficient way for mariners to continue sharing any information with us that could be navigationally significant,” said Hugh Phillips, head of product management at the UKHO.

“Every mariner and every ship, whether sailing internationally or in local waters, has a part to play by serving as our eyes across the oceans.”

The H-Note App can be downloaded for free and is available for both iOS and Android.
