The current economic future is very positive for hydrographic surveying. The shortage of skilled hydrographers is a global problem and there are ample jobs in a range of areas. Since hydrographic surveying remains a core factor in maritime developments, coastal zone management and maritime trade, career opportunities exist in various marine-related fields, industries and companies.
