The 2nd S-100 stakeholders’ workshop was held at the UKHO in March 2010. CherSoft were included in the 15 invited industry volunteers representing mariners, ship operators, ECDIS manufacturers and chart software developers. The purpose of the workshop was to gain first hand information from stakeholders on the impact, requirements and any constraints involved in the introduction of the new developments. In 3 days of discussion a wide variety of topics were tackled. Simon commented “We have been developing S-57 based systems for many years, and are pleased to be able to contribute towards the developing new standards”.
