Feature and information associations

Available with Maritime Charting license.

With the Association Manager, you can create, edit, and delete associations in your S-101 data. The Association Manager is located on the Maritime ribbon.

An association is a logical relationship between two or more feature types that specifies connections among their instances. You need write access to the active workspace to create, append, or remove associations. You do not need write access to view existing associations in the active workspace.

For more information regarding the types of associations, and what is allowed, refer to the S-101 ENC Product Feature Catalogue.
