Access S-57 ENC, CARIS HOB, CARIS File, BSB, GeoTIFF, TFW Images, DGN, CRL and SHAPE files for Feature Creation and Editing. In addition, the file types that can be opened as backdrops have been expanded in all editors. The following additional file types are now available in HPD:
Organize and manage data by creating layers or selections based on filters for features geometries, types and attributes, FOIDS or status. A filter wizard is available for more complex combinations.
Use custom-built scripts to import features from formatted text files, GML files or from a database using Open Database Connectivity (ODBC).
Import selected features from backdrop files or grab geometries as needed. Vectorize lines or areas from raster backdrops.
Create and access workspaces for efficiency in the management of source data production.
Access other Oracle databases and workspaces without exiting from the HPD program.
Select individual usages when opening a workspace for a faster data load.
Save Session files of the current data layers including zoomed views, display settings and backdrop files for future work.
Add new point, line and area features easily with tools for multiple feature creation and attribute definition.
Utilize advanced feature creation tools for creating complex area and line features.
Easily create Collection Objects and Master-Slaves with automatic relationship tracking.
Utilize advanced editing tools for modifying existing data, such as the Swipe and Flicker tools.
Create and re-use feature templates for efficiency in digitizing.
Use feature templates to define an object class, attributes, and spatial type.
Support for data that crosses the 180° meridian is now built into all HPD editors. You no longer need to select a special option for data that crosses or borders the 180° meridian. Also, functionality has been improved to support work areas which span the 180 meridian or are wider than 180 degrees.
Track data changes using markers including text descriptions and graphics.
Assign and locate markers for single features or groups of features using advanced filtering.
Track and comment on data changes through marker replies.
Shared marker functionality between HPD and Notebook.
Use projects to track the work done and facilitate the verification process. The Quality Control tools will also obey the project boundaries. Changes can be reverted by the application back to the start of the project.
Assign generalized representations to multiple usages.
Create relationships between representations on multiple usages to manage future updates.
Apply updates or remove representations of features.
Track updates made to representations with filter layers.
Track and manage data workflows through the certification of features.
Automatically assign "Under Construction" statuses to new or modified feature spatials and attributes.
Identify features as being ready for product creation once all spatials and attributes have been set to "Verified".
Report changes since the last verified version of the selected feature.
Run the built-in S-57 ENC validation checks to report geometries and attributes that do not comply with the Product Specifications. You can also create your own set of Quality Control checks and share them with other users.
Utilize advanced editing tools to repair these features prior to product creation.
