Sweden: The Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) has chosen CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) as the new system to meet the Hydrographic Office's current and future requirements. The Hydrographic Office plans to exploit the system for the management of spatial data and the efficient production of paper and electronic charts. HPD offers an integrated suite of products that can manage data in a seamless database, providing a multi-user environment for efficient data and chart production. Products such as S-57 ENCs, IENCs, S-57 AMLs, Paper Charts and Nautical Publications can all be created with the system as well as GIS exports for further data analysis, distribution and discover. Established in 1979, CARIS is a leading developer of geospatial software.
