The S-57 Composer VPF Module is enabled via an optional license setup. The VPF Module enables users to take advantage of the unique capability to convert S-57 to VPF and vice versa.
The S-57 Composer VPF Module offers an easy transition for CARIS DOM customers to the modern, powerful, feature-rich S-57 Composer production workflow.
CARIS has a long history of leadership in conversion between S-57 ENC and VPF DNC. The CARIS HOM & DOM applications have included support for conversion for more than a decade. CARIS' leading membership in international groups, like the Hydrographic Information Harmonization Working Group (HIHWG), clearly demonstrates our expertise in ENC-DNC conversion.
S-57 Composer includes a new, unique solution for format conversion. After opening the new source format, a simple button press will result in an initial conversion success rate of approximately 80%. Further refinements are easily solved with customized mapping support and built-in editing and quality assurance tools. Gone are workflow steps like the need to relayer the data or rebuild topology. These are all taken care of by CARIS S-57 Composer.
