SHOM (Naval hydrographic and oceanographic service)

SHOM is the French public operator for statistics and figures for maritime and coastal geography. A public administration establishment under the aegis of the Department of Defence, its aim is to find information and describe the physical marine environment in its relationships with the atmosphere, seabeds and coastal areas, foresee changes, and ensure the corresponding information is disseminated. This consists of three key activities: the hydrography of France, support to defence entities and support to public policies concerning the sea and coastal regions.
