West Coast Chapter

The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA) West Coast Chapter serves as the focal point for hydrographic activities to those residing west of the Rockies including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

The board would like to invite members and non-members to attend our meetings to learn more about the organization, meet other professionals, and gain further knowledge on the subject of hydrography. With technical presentations given at most meetings, one can learn more about the industry, equipment and application updates, as well as news in the industry.
