ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting helps national hydrographic offices, charting agencies, and subcontractors significantly increase the speed and flexibility of their production operations. The solution provides a true GIS-based platform to improve, standardize, and expedite data and workflow management. This enables you to produce charts in days, not weeks, from data acquisition to product creation and to share data across your organization and with other agencies for flexible and efficient interoperability.

With ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting, you can

  • Generate high-quality electronic, hard-copy, and raster products directly from the database that comply with International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) S4, S-57, and your standards.
  • Allow the widest possible use of your data by storing, managing, and sharing it efficiently and flexibly without the need to export to a separate product.
  • Combine data for myriad uses, from real-time emergency planning to protected area analysis, using dynamic data sources that were previously trapped in static products.
  • Ensure the quality and timeliness of your data by tracking “who, what, why, and when”—who updated the data, what were the updates, why the updates were made, and when were they made.
