Abstract

The identification, assessment and mitigation of risk are the central safety responsibilities of ports and harbour authorities, and all available tools should be employed to achieve this. Advances in Geographic Information Science, data availability and computer processing power have enabled a new paradigm of spatial analysis in many industries, and there is considerable scope for these techniques to be more widely used both in the improvement of navigational safety and the communication of maritime risk to stakeholders. In this paper we will provide an overview of Geographic Information Science, their applicability in ports and harbours, and the benefits they can bring to a Harbour Master. The paper draws upon a number of case studies in which the innovative modelling of maritime risk and vessel traffic has enabled informed, targeted decision making to protect lives, vessels and the environment.
