Specificity of ENC Data Representation on an Archipelagic Sea Area - Example of the East Coast of the Middle Adriatic Sea Area
1 Hydrographic Institute of Republic of Croatia, Split, Croatia
ABSTRACT: Production of ENCs is based on the theory of multiscale data management (usage bands) and multiple representation of ENC data, controlled by scale minimum (SCAMIN) attributes. This paper presents a solution to the problem of multiscale data management and multiple representation as a part of ENC data production for archipelagic sea areas, using the east coast of the Middle Adriatic Sea area as a typical example. This study is based on a long-standing experience in the production of paper charts and recently ENC production for eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, which is believed to be the second largest archipelagic area in the Mediterranean. A new method of using SCAMIN attributes for archipelagic seas was proposed, based on Canadian method. Also, a new usage band scale range, compilation scale (twice the chart scale) for all navigational purposes and method of using SCAMIN attributes for archipelagic seas are proposed.
