HPD Suite

One Feature, One Time

Eliminate Redundancy in Data Management with the CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD). Using Oracle® data processing, HPD offers an integrated suite of applications, providing for simultaneous data processing and workflows by multiple users. Efficiency is maximized for data storage with features being stored only once, with the ability to create multiple representations for different products.

Manipulate, analyze and compile data using intuitive CARIS tools, and create products with confidence.

Implement the HPD suite of products for production of S-57 ENCs and IENCs, S-57 AMLs, Paper Charts to IHO standards, or the creation and maintenance of non-chart Nautical Publications and Generic Products based on user-defined sets of features. The HPD editors derive products from the source data in the same database. Updates to source are carried automatically to multiple products. Product-specific features and customizations can be made concurrently without affecting the source features.



Source Editor

A desktop application for compiling and generalizing source data

Access the latest tools for creating and editing source data in preparation for product creation with one of the HPD product editors. Access source data from the HPD database or import from external datasets for easy updates to existing data. Organize and track changes to your source data with customizable display styles, effective filtering and marker functionality. This application is designed for managing data on multiple scale bands for multiple product types and ensure your data quality with a comprehensive set of validation checks.

HPD Server

Incorporating the latest database driven technology for storing and managing source data

Eliminate data redundancy and efficiently track changes between the source data and multiple products with the power of Oracle® database. The HPD data model supports real-world objects defined by a combination of descriptive and spatial characteristics based on the IHO S-57 data structure.

The HPD data model and the HPD Publications application provide the means to create custom catalogues that are suited to your publication needs. Multiple versions of an IENC product (i.e IENC 2.1, 2.1 and 2.3 ) can be created in the Product Editor from the same HPD Source data.

The HPD Server provides you with an API library that allows HPD to be linked to third-party systems.

The HPD Server comes with administration tools to create users, configure database usage and assign user roles with the associated access and functionality. Customize your database dictionary, as required, to add organizational-specific features. Manage workflows with comprehensive project and source registry tools.

Product Editor

A desktop application for compiling and generalizing source data

HPD Product Editor is a next-generation database application for the production of S-57 Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC), Inland Electronic Navigational Charts (IENC), Additional Military Layers (AML) and Geographic Markup Language (GML) products.

Obtain quality and efficiency in creating and updating S-57 products. HPD Product Editor utilizes a comprehensive set of tools for the production of S-57 ENC, IENC, AML and GML products created from HPD source data and external data sources. Customized product features and graphical depictions can also be used with each product line without affecting the source data. The Product Editor provides built-in quality control checks to ensure compliance with the S-57 and S-58 standards.

Paper Chart Editor

A desktop application for compiling and publishing paper chart products

Improve efficiency in managing paper chart products using the capabilities of the HPD database. Paper Charts in either vector or raster format can be created from the same HPD source, thereby eliminating duplication of data compilation and maintenance. Utilize the standard cartographic presentation in the HPD Paper Chart Editor based on the IHO INT1, S-4 and INT2 specifications or customize your own presentations for organization-specific products. Powerful raster charting tools are also available. Both vector and raster paper charts can co-exist in the same HPD database. Organize and track changes to your source data with flexible filtering and marker functionality, including ties to the Publications Module.
