The Hydrographic Services Office is a client-focused organization dedicated to providing geomatic products and information to the Canadian Forces (CF). Under the command of the Mapping and Charting Establishment (MCE), the HSO in Halifax supports operations of the sea, land and air elements of the Canadian Forces as well as the maritime units of other federal government departments. In support of MARCOT 98, the HSO has provided a myriad of traditional paper based Maritime/Aeronautical charts, topographic maps and publications to the exercise participants. In addition to this traditional level of service, the HSO also provides user defined, mission specific, large format custom charting or planning/briefing sheets. Furthermore, the HSO is the first point of contact for all geomatic information requirements.
