UKHO ENC Services - 03/10/2007

Two electronic charting services developed by the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) will beunveiled at the Europort Maritime exhibition. The services will further strengthen UKHO's commitment to the Safety Of Life At Sea convention.


The first service the UKHO team will put in the spotlight is an improved updating method for Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC). The UKHO's ENC service is being improved to allow users to update their charts with the latest data remotely, which means they will have access to up-to-the-minute chart information over the Internet at any time and won't need to wait for the usual CD-ROM update.


Alongside this, the UKHO will be demonstrating a new web service that gives shore-based personnel operating within the Merchant Marine and Defence environments, the ability to view up-to-date charts on-line.
