Caris launches S-57 Composer 2.2
With a brand new year, CARIS is introducing a revolutionary solution to the problems of converting Digital Nautical Charts (DNC’s) to Electronic Nautical Charts (ENC’s) and vice versa.
CARIS, with S-57 Composer 2.2, now offers a DNC Plug-in available through an optional license. The DNC Plug-in has a unique capability of automatically converting, with a first-pass success rate of 80%, DNC to ENC and vice versa.
The DNC Plug-in allows for further refinements to the conversion with user customized mapping support and built-in editing and quality assurance tools.
CARIS has been at the forefront of working on the issue of conversion between DNC and ENC with international groups like the Hydrographic Information Harmonization Working Group (HIHWG). HIHWG was established to identify a solution to harmonize digital vector hydrographic data.
