C-Map Names Distributor of Singapore ENC Data
C-MAPhas been appointed an Official Distributor of Electronic Navigation Charts (ENC) produced by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) Hydrographic Department. This announcement was made after C-MAP Norway signed an agreement with the MPA. The MPA has been a pioneer in the development of ENCs and is one of the few hydrographic offices that offer complete ENC coverage of national waters supported by an updating service. The waters of Singapore are subject to continual change due to weather and environmental factors. As a result, the MPA surveys the Singapore waters continually. This survey data is collected and included in its navigation chart database on a weekly basis, resulting in a uniquely updated chart database. The MPA supports the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the International Hydrographic Office (1HO) in the development, testing and implementation of ENC data in ECDIS systems.
