Project Goal

The overall objective of the project, MyMarine Geo-Hub is to improve utilization of marine spatial information in spatial planning and management in Malaysia. At the same time, the project was designed to improve the access to marine spatial information and thus possibilities for inter-agency cooperation and public participation in data sharing and other spatial planning and management processes. More efficient data sharing will create savings by reducing duplication of work by various agencies. In particular, accurate coastal and marine data are crucial for the safety of navigation, which is imperative for a maritime nation like Malaysia.

In general, MyMarine Geo-Hub is part of the Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI) initiative developed by National Hydrographic Center (NHC) to support the Malaysia Geospatial Data Infrastructure (MyGDI). Under this project, NHC has the capability to provide services and products that can be used by both defence and public sectors.
