Utilize the annotation tool to automatically generate annotations from chart features or from chart metadata.
Easily customize the annotation file to add or modify annotations.
Use the text editing tools to easily move annotations or change the font, size, colour, justification, spacing, and rotation of text.
Compile chart data from multiple Source usages and perform "WYSIWYG" editing on the panel data.
Interactively change displays of features by assigning user-defined cartographic overrides.
Easily move features for better cartographic display.
Add cartographic features such as national hydrographic organization seals or logo symbols.
Add INT1 compass rose symbols from the paper chart presentation library or customized compass roses, if required.
Add text directly to the chart or from Rich Text Format (.rtf) files along horizontal, slanting or curved lines. Easily set the font, size, colour, justification, spacing, and rotation of text.
Display differences between overlapping panels.
Copy selected cartographic changes reported by the panel overlap command from one panel to another.
Data comparison and integration tasks are now easier with the new swipe and flicker tools.
Create a chart based on a hierarchical structure that contains a "sheet" with one or more "panels".
Enter metadata for the chart, sheet and panels in their own properties windows.
Create multiple panels from different source usages with different projections, scales and orientations.
Display panel data in their geographic positions or paper space coordinates. Panel boundaries can be modified without loss of previous cartographic editing and panel features can be "recut" from Source in order to comply with the updated panel limits.
Masking can now be applied automatically to a paper chart using new dynamic masking capabilities. This new masking method uses settings in lookup tables, the masking file and the presentation control file to seamlessly apply a masking style to features that are digitized or imported into a panel.
Dynamic masking can be readily re-configured to meet your needs. Existing masking commands and new masking attributes can, if necessary, override dynamic masking. Masking of intersections for roads with double-line symbolization can be achieved automatically when using the new dynamic masking.
Create Paper Charts based on INT1 Cartographic Presentation.
Paper Chart presentation library provides users with a cartographic product that can be customized to fulfill organization-specific requirements.
Colour-code features in a chart based on their attributes using the new change by classification command.
Add coloured legends to chart panels based on classifications.
True-Type symbols can now be used instead of the standard CARIS symbol sets.
Automatically add borders, scale bars and projected grids from INT2 Templates.
Carry out interactive editing and save customizations as new templates.
Utilize powerful tools for comparing panel data to the source to identify new, modified and deleted features from source. Changes or cartographic edits can also be copied from one chart to another.
Review changes from the source before applying them to the panel.
Significant enhancements are now available for processing raster charts. Differences between the chart raster layers and another chart or a set of external files can be highlighted by using the new Change Cells functionality and the Show Additions and Show Deletions commands.
The same certification process that is applied to HPD source and product data is now also applied to raster layers. Certification removes the need for markers to designate areas in a proposed layer that can be burned into the reference layer.
Raster pixels can now be copied between panels. Colours in raster layers can now be blended.
A chart can now be exported as a CMYK TIFF dataset; generation of spot colour separates has been made easier. The export to GEOTIFF will also include any backdrop data that is visible at the time of export.
When printing charts, users wish to see their charts reproduced on different technologies with consistent results. With modern devices such as monitors, printers or plotters, using RGB or CMYK values alone is no longer enough to ensure colour consistency. Colour profiles from the International Colour Consortium (.icc) can now be embedded in a chart during export. This ensures a consistent colour scheme when the chart is printed or exported to a third-party format such as PDF.
Automatically assign "Under Construction" statuses to new or modified product-specific features.
Identify features as being ready for paper chart production once they have been validated by the Quality Control and set to "Verified".
Access HPD Workspaces from source data for paper chart production.
Create products from generalized representations on multiple usages.
