Data model brings new versatility to chart production

August 4th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Teledyne Caris has released its Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) 4.0. This new version of HPD is designed to support hydrographic offices around the world as they embrace the new S-100 Universal Hydrographic Data Model and explore its many possibilities. Users of HPD 4.0 will be able to augment their existing production environment to support both the S-101 and S-57 Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC) production from the same source database. Rich, customisable mappings allow for a full transition of data to the new data model to achieve versatility without redundancy. Also featured in version 4.0 is the ability to connect to the bathymetry compilation toolkit, Caris Bathy Database (BDB). A new add-on module allows users the ability to access additional bathymetry-related tools directly from within HPD Editors to generate and process smooth safe-side contours, perform cartographic sounding selections, and more. As well, new functionality allows users the ability to manage temporary features and preliminary Notices to Mariner-type changes in ENC chart production.
