Esri release ArcGIS for Maritime – electronic systems to support better chart production & data management

Esri has released a new solution to support users in port management, maritime transport, coastal management, offshore energy, nautical chart production, and maritime defense.

ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting, and ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry, are part of the ArcGIS system and enable users to create, manage, and share maritime-related data and metadata. Together, these solutions provide a comprehensive geospatial platform for nautical chart production and bathymetric data management.

"ArcGIS for Maritime will save time and money for organizations that use bathymetric and nautical data," said Timothy Kearns, maritime program manager, Esri. "In conjunction with Esri partner Quality Positioning Systems [QPS], this solution provides the market with the only end-to-end capability from collecting sensor data to publishing it in the cloud."

ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting (previously Esri Nautical Solution) improves, standardizes, and increases data and workflow management by allowing nautical data to be captured, maintained, and managed in a centralized database. Users can produce electronic, paper, raster, and custom charts as well as integrate their nautical data with other spatial information. Sharing with other groups, including the public, is one of the many advantages of this approach.

ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry solves challenges traditionally found in the hydrographic community such as the creation of nonstandard metadata and data duplication that leads to massive amounts of stored data. Now, bathymetric data and metadata can be indexed, searched, and modeled for more efficient management.
