Finnish Transport Agency selects CARIS software suite

Members of the Teledyne CARIS and FTA project team Members of the Teledyne CARIS and FTA project team

With many lakes, an archipelagic sea and an estimated 40,000 islands, Liikennevirasto - the Finnish Transport Agency (FTA) - has a large and complex portfolio of navigational charts to maintain.

Following a competitive process, it has chosen the Teledyne CARIS' Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) as the chart production system best meeting its current and future needs. The implementation process will include the deployment of software and migration of existing products to an optimised workflow, where data will be centrally managed and various product types derived from one updated source.

HPD provides an integrated suite of products which can manage data in a seamless database, providing a multi-user environment for efficient data and chart production. Products such as S-57 ENCs and IENCs, S-57 AMLs, paper charts and nautical publications can all be created with the system, as well as GIS exports for further data analysis, distribution and discovery. It is also capable of generating the new IHO S-100 series of products.

CARIS also has extensive links with other European hydrographic offices including those in Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
