What is ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting? (Maritime Charting)

The ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting is a part of a complete system for managing data, products, workflows, and quality. It is an extension to the ArcGIS product line that tightly integrates with ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcGIS for Server, and other extensions such as ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for Desktop and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension. The Maritime Charting is bundled with complementary components that include Esri Production Mapping tools, ArcGIS Data Reviewer for Desktop, ArcGIS Workflow Manager for Desktop, and Task Assistant Manager. Together, these components provide the modern hydrographic community with a comprehensive solution to solve challenges and inefficiencies for hydrographic data, product, and workflow management.

Maritime Charting is centered on a paradigm that focuses on four main tenets: data, product, workflow, and quality management. The primary objective of Maritime Charting is to efficiently manage hydrographic information, products, and integrated workflows to generate electronic, hard-copy, and raster navigational products compliant with standards. Maritime Charting allows the creation of these products in two production environments, enterprise or desktop.

The Esri Mapping and Charting solutions include industry-specific, standards-based templates, rules, and tools. Through configuration, the tools and processes can be adapted to meet maturing business needs, and therefore an API is not included for customization.
