ENC Bathymetry Plotter Narrows Contour Lines - 06/07/2016


Germany-based SevenCs has released a brand new member of the ENC Tools family. ENC Bathymetry Plotter assists the producer of nautical charts in contour generation and helps to reduce the manual work. The contouring process is based on a shoal-biased Nautical Elevation Model and creates contour lines that have a smooth appearance and do not require any further generalisation.

ENC Bathymetry Plotter also supports the creation of selected soundings at configurable density. This product can be used to improve ENC data irrespective of the type of ENC production system in use by a particular HO.

In addition ENC Bathymetry Plotter is the ideal tool to support the recent recommendation from IHO.IHO suggests that HOs should “increase the resolution of bathymetric contour lines within ENCs” in order to improve ENC Data Quality.
