Does anyone know of a list of data providers for S-57 Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) which could be consumed via ArcGIS products.

Ideally the provider will have a global scope but country and regional listing will also be useful to know.

Hi Simon,

You can get NOAA ENC datasets for free at NOAA ENC® .  This site also provides access to an ENC Viewer, which is using ArcGIS Maritime's server extension Nautical Charts Online | Display S-57 & S-63 Encrypted Datasets on the Web.  To get global coverage you would need to contact a value added reseller (VAR).   You can access a list of them at Current IC-ENC VARs.  I would recommend AVCS or Chartworld, depending on your needs.  Chartworld also distributes Navionics data, though unofficial ENC data, it still provides great coverage.

What are you looking to do with the data once in ArcGIS?  Knowing this would allow me to provide additional details on how ArcGIS and the various extensions can work with either S-57 ENC or S-63 encrypted ENC datasets.

Hi Simon,

Are you aware of the new and improved Admiralty Vector Chart Service? It utilizes ArcGIS Maritime in the Azure cloud for provisioning the ENC.
