Nautical charting and maritime data management are key to a thriving national economy. Production and management of authoritative information and nautical charts must be reliable and delivered in a timely manner to ensure safety of life and property. In the modern maritime environment, vessel drafts and traffic are increasing. These drivers are causing the need for higher-resolution products to be delivered faster. ArcGIS supports successful production and timely product delivery, minimizing risk to national maritime traffic disruption and economic loss.
Chart production is becoming an electronic-first endeavor, where all the data is pulled from one standardized, GIS-based system.
