Yesterday I presented to the European working group of the IHO, the international hydrographic organisation. The European working group consists of the national hydrographic services, which are regularly part of the navy of the respective countries.

The online meeting was hosted and chaired by the French Service hydrographique et océanographique de la Marine (SHOM), operating out of Brest. I was pleasantly surprised that this French government organisation used the open source tool Big Blue Button for the video conference.

Kudos for using open source in the public sector!
