For Immediate Release

Fredericton, NB, Canada – December 17, 2014 – The latest release of CARIS Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) 3.1 offers an abundance of new functionality, including new comparison tools and customizable user access.

The leading database production system allows users to manage their marine spatial information and create cartographic products. In HPD 3.1 the new flicker and swipe tools allow users to examine different layers and external data sources simultaneously. These tools can be used at any time during the production workflow, further enhancing the data compilation process.
