CARIS announces the release of the Additional Military Layer (AML) Product Editor, the latest addition to the CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) product suite.
The release of AML Product Editor expands upon the existing HPD product suite, which already includes the HPD Source Editor, S-57 ENC Product Editor and Paper Chart Editor.
The HPD product suite is a seamless enterprise solution with unique database-driven functionality that takes hydrographic data management and production to the next level in collaboration and efficiency. Source data and products are integrated into one database, meaning changes to the source data need only be performed once, and updated features can simply be used between all products.
AML Product Editor is designed to manage and produce S-57 AML's compliant with the six vector NATO AML v2.0 specifications: Contour Line Bathymetry (CLB), Environment, Seabed and Beach (ESB), Maritime Foundation and Facilities (MFF), Routes, Areas and Limits (RAL), Large Bottom Objects (LBO) and Small Bottom Objects (SBO).
Functionality includes the ability to import from many common GIS data formats; to view raster images; and to connect to external databases for importing valuable data, such as mine contact or wreck information.
CARIS is proud of their established expertise and well-known association with AML production. Many of the world?s leading AML production agencies use CARIS' existing desktop solutions; this release introduces our innovative HPD functionality to their workflow.
