Danish Geodata Agency Selects Esri Platform to Chart Waters

Esri has been selected by the Danish Geodata Agency (GST) to build a whole new system for creating and maintaining nautical charts of Danish and Greenlandic waters. With new shipping routes opening in the Arctic due to melting ice, it is crucial to have accurate charts in support of safe navigation and environmental protection. By partnering with Esri and its official distributor in Denmark, Geoinfo A/S, GST expects to produce charts of Danish waters more efficiently and be able to share information across departments and multiple agencies.
