After yearlong debates, the member states now agree about a consolidated interpretation of e-Navigation (NAV58/6, 2012). One of the principal decisions made already, is to develop the overarching consistent e-navigation data model on all aspects related to the shipping and maritime domain at large. This so-called Common Maritime Data Structure should be built on the basis of the S-100 Framework of IHO (S-100, 2010). The basis of data modeling within the S-100 framework is the so called ?IHO Geospatial Information Registry? (Registry, 2013). Although S-100 is designed to support a wider range of hydrographic data beyond ENCs, their creators originally had no intention to expand this model to the wider scope of shipping. This paper proposes a transformation and an enhancement of the existent infrastructure towards a universal ?Marine Information Registry? to host data modeling of all aspects of shipping and the maritime domain, including the modeling of non-spatial information.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.07.01.05}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {e-Navigation, e-Navigation Strategy, Data Modelling, IMO Approach, Common Maritime Data Structure (CMDS), IHO Geospatial Information Registry, Geospatial Information, IHO S-100} }
