HNHS compiles the official Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) of Greece in compliance with the S-57 Ed 3.1 standard of the International Hydrographic Organization - IHO. These charts are intended for professional Electronic Chart Display Information Systems (ECDIS). ENCs for ECDIS are made available encrypted with IHO S-63 standard. They can be used by any other non-ECDIS system that can read S-63 encrypted S57 Ed. 3.1 data (ECS systems).
