Norwegian Hydrographic Joins With C-Map

Thursday, August 03, 2000
The Norwegian Hydrographic Service has signed a contract with C-Map Norway for electronic navigational charts (ENC) and production of paper nautical charts. This long-term plan, which aims to cover the Norwegian coast with modern sea charts by 2006, will be accomplished with data and databases coming from Norwegian Hydrographic Services so that C-Map can produce S57 Edition 3 data, ENC S57 data as outlined in the ENC product specification and data for paper chart production. The contract's main elements involve production of new charts and reconstruction of new charts - with all production carried out under the terms of the contract based on S57 data, SOSI land data - as well as other data obtained from publications such as Pilot and Sailing directions, List of Lights, existing land and sea maps, and Notices To Mariners.
