S-57 Composer is a next-generation desktop application for the production of electronic navigational products, including Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC), Additional Military Layers (AML), Inland ENC (IENC) and Digital Nautical Charts (DNC).
By utilizing S-57 Composer, desktop users now have access to the same robust object creation and editing tools that exist in HPD. The successor to the long-trusted CARIS HOM ENC and HOM AML products, S-57 Composer delivers a highly intuitive workflow for creation of any official or customized product.
The application includes support for creating ENC 3.1 (3.1.1 & 3.1.2), AML (1.0, 2.1 & 3.0) and IENC (2.1, 2.2 & 2.3). Generation of Marine Information Overlays (MIO) and specialty products such as Bathymetric ENCs, Digital Survey Sheets and Pilot Charts are also possible. VPF DNC, AML and TOD production is available with an optional license extension.
S-57 Composer is the most modern and widely used application on the market for desktop electronic chart production. In support of the new S-100 data standard, users can now create S-100 products in S-57 Composer. Users can gain familiarity with the new complex and multiplicity attribute types, work with information types, assign S-100 portrayal to features, convert ENC and DNC to S-101 and work with the expanding registry of S-100 product specifications.
