In recent years more and more organizations worldwide - i.e. hydrographic offices, port and waterway authorities - have increased the production of so-called bathymetric ENCs (bENC). This is a high density bathymetry layer which can be put on top of an S-57 ENC for providing detailed, most up-to-date depth information. Typically bENCs are used in Portable Pilot Units for navigating in shallow and confined waters. Thus it is of utmost importance that data producers validate their information before distributing it to navigators with the highest responsibility level.
Meeting this demand a new tool named 7Cs bENC Validator was released. Integrated into ENC Designer and running on our innovative Kernel engine (Nautilus) makes it extremely fast and very easy to use.
