This cartographic product presented in electronic form contains a set of the necessary navigational data for the area of responsibility of Ukraine. It is suitable for use in navigational systems.

In accordance with the IHO requirements as to cartographic products quality, the State Hydrographic Service of Ukraine provides measures intended for layered verification and testing of ENC files. Such verification and testing are performed to ensure the compliance with the current international standards for official nautical and inland waterway charts of Ukraine. Besides, the SHSU carries out analysis and detection of errors in the software other than that utilized in production of national electronic charts.

In particular, ENCs were verified, analyzed and optimized for compliance with the following standards:

  • Specification for Inland ENCs, edition 2.3;
  • Presentation Library for Inland ECDIS, edition 2.1;
  • Recommended Check of Inland ENCs, edition 2.3.5;
  • Inland ENC Feature Catalogue, edition 2.0;
  • Inland ECDIS Standard for Inland Navigation, edition 2.0.

Data optimization was decided to be implemented in accordance with ENC SCAMIN policy as defined by S-57 – Use of the Object Catalogue for ENC, edition 3.1 and S-58 ENC Validation Checks, edition 5.0.

The optimized ENCs, ENC cells, Ukrainian inland waterway charts and files of the relevant amendments and supplements hereto (updating files) are available and provided to users.

The half-yearly publication «Journal of State Hydrographic Service of Ukraine» acquaints the readers with achievements of the national hydrography.

The technology «Print-on-Demand» has been implemented for constant keeping national portfolio up-to-date and satisfying demands of customers.
