Countdown to S-100

Data standards in action

The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) and Teledyne Geospatial are collaborating to provide expertise and solutions to customers who wish to produce S-100 data services, migrate existing S-57 production to S-100, or obtain essential S-100 information.

S-100 introduces new possibilities and new challenges

New products and services are made possible thanks to S-100 such as ENCs (S-101), Bathymetric Surfaces (S-102), Marine Protected Areas (S-122), and many more. These are predicted to bring advantages to mariners, and beyond.

The UKHO and Teledyne Geospatial are sharing the expertise and experience already gained with S-100, from training and tools, to organization specific support and assistance in the effort to enable S-100 worldwide.

Everything you need to maintain S-100 data and products

S-100 module for S-57 Composer

Support for the S-100 data model including new object types and complex attributes is now available in S-57 Composer through the new S-100 module. Interoperability between S-57 and S-100 is provided by user-customizable mapping files that can automatically convert features between S-57 and S-100 product data models. S-100 datasets, including S-101 datasets, can be created, updated and exported to create S-100 Exchange Sets, including S-101 ENC Exchange Sets.

S-57 Composer
S-102 production with BASE Editor

Generate high resolution IHO S-102 bathymetric surfaces to ensure safer passage, more precise navigation and berthing, and better route planning in your waters.

BASE Editor
S-100 module for HPD Server

Start transitioning your HPD database to S-100 now with the S-100 module for HPD Server. Enable S-100 in your HPD production database and add a S-101 ENC production line with no change or risk to your existing production lines. Once your HPD Database is S-100 enabled, use the same HPD Editors to maintain all production lines concurrently, S-101 ENC included!

Build in-house S-100 knowledge, identify value-added information to encode in S-100, and provide feedback to the IHO on S-100 standards. Fine tune mapping rules from your HPD S-57+ source database to HPD S-101 products so that they meet your needs.

Looking for support of other S-100 products, like S-121, S-122, etc.? We can help with those too. Contact us to learn more.
