ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting

An ArcGIS for Desktop Extension

More Than Navigational Charts

Navigational charts are just the beginning. Your charts contain rich data with uses beyond navigation. Share all or parts of your authoritative data so that others can re-purpose it on maps, websites, and even mobile device apps.

“The end result is the ability to export seamless maps from a single database. Having a centralized geodatabase has also improved the quality of the data and cartography by reducing the inconsistencies that occurred when the maps and cells were edited individually in silos.”

Make Traditional Charts Faster and Maintain Them in Record Time

ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting accelerates nautical chart production. Since digital and paper charts are made from the same data, editing and maintenance times are greatly reduced. Through automation, fully compliant Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) can be created with the click of a button, and paper charts are ready for cartographic finishing in minutes… saving time and money.
