New coverage in Greenland
New ENCs with limited depiction. In order to release multibeam survey information in Greenland as quickly as possible to the mariner, the Danish Hydrographic Office has produced a series of ENCs with limited content where there are currently no existing ENCs available to end-users. These new ENCs (known as Base Content ENCs) will improve safety to the mariner by releasing modern accurate information, where previously there was only smaller scale or no ENC coverage.
The first four new Base Content ENCs (DK4AQEUE, DK4AQEWE, DK4AQEYE and DK4AQFAE) have been released today (WK8/2021).
Coverage diagrams can be found below.
In the interests of speed, only new geo positionally correct coastline, multibeam survey and Aids to Navigation have been included. Most other features, including bathymetry from older sources, are omitted in areas outside of multibeam surveys.
Mariners are advised to refer to published Standard Nautical Charts for additional content outside multibeam areas.
The Danish Hydrographic Office has informed that they plan to release 18 Base Content ENCs this year.
