Teledyne CARIS reacts to latest IHO ENC validation standard

29 June 2017

june_17_-_tdy_caris_-_s57.jpg (14.9 K)Teledyne CARIS is pleased to announce the adoption of Edition 6.0 of IHO Publication S-58 for ENC validation checks, in the latest release of CARIS S-57 Composer 3.1.

Now supporting ENC validation based on the new S-58 Edition 6.0 (May 2017) Standard, S-57 Composer's internal and customised quality control tests have been reorganised, rewritten and extended to match the standard. New messages have been added to the tests and the descriptions have been re-worded to add clarity. New test collections have been created to quickly determine if an ENC passes the mandatory Error and Warning checks. S-57 Composer's comprehensive validation reporting tools allow you to evaluate, view and resolve any issues present in an ENC created in CARIS or a third party ENC production software.

Also included in this release is additional functionality to further support the emerging S-100 standard including support for the creation, viewing and editing of S-100 complex attributes and attributes with multiplicity of values. This builds on S-57 Composer's existing support for S-100 product creation, management and viewing of S-101 data and other S-100 products.

Existing users of CARIS S-57 Composer will require an updated licence string to run this new version; this is available from the Online Customer Services website.

S-57 Composer is now a 64-bit only application.
