New tools




Cartography toolset

Generate Annotation Masks

Generates polygon masks for annotation features that intersect other polygon features. This tool supports nautical cartographic workflows that require masking based on geographic coincidence to specified input features. The specified input features (those that intersect the input annotation features) can be polygons or polylines from the ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting data model or other sources.

Generate Cartographic Limits

Makes it easy to remove coincident features along a coastline and eliminates masks. This improves cartographic display of nautical digital and hard-copy charts in the following manner:

  • Establishes a seaward limit of features coincident to a coastline
  • Reduces the number of features rendered on a chart
  • Decreases drawing and export times of nautical products
