Bring to the field a digital, standards-based alternative to the paper field book
A digital alternative to the traditional paper field book, Notebook allows for quick transfer of digital field survey data to cartographers for efficient update of digital products. Any new geo-referenced data entered in CARIS Notebook will be recorded as hydrographic S-57 objects. These objects are easily transferred to S-57 ENCs, digital charts, or survey field sheets.
Built on S-57 Hydrographic standard
Collect geo-referenced hydrographic object data and notes in the field. New S-57 objects can be added and proper S-57 attributes attached during collection or import. Even field note descriptions can be attached to new marker objects as attributes. Your new objects can be quickly viewed as needed and easily transferred to other products supporting S-57.
Reduce the Need for Resurveys
Use the tools in CARIS Notebook to compare new data to results from previous surveys or from other sources for verification and validation of hydrographic and survey features. Avoid the cost of having to resurvey.
Easy transfer to CARIS hydrographic production software
Update your ENCs by opening newly digitized S-57 hydrographic objects directly in ENC production software: CARIS HOM and CARIS HPD. Export newly digitized hydrographic objects to a CARIS map for digital chart maintenance and production.
Utilize real time GPS data
Use the NMEA support or Trimble support in CARIS Notebook to obtain data directly from your GPS receiver to allow direct digitizing of hydrographic objects in Notebook.
