Validate S-57 File (Maritime)

Доступно с лицензией Maritime Charting.


Validates an ENC or IENC file and generates an .S58 file as a result.


  • Multiple revision (ER) files, also known as updates, must be validated at the same time as the base file. Individual ER files cannot be validated at a later time.

  • A new edition (EN) base file can be validated.

  • A catalog file (.031) can be validated. When a catalog file is chosen for validation, only the S-58 checks pertaining to the Exchange Set or data structure will be run.

  • The tool will output a shapefile and an XML file of the S-58 errors discovered during the validation process.

  • An ignore list text file can be used to disable specific S-58 checks.

  • A sample ignore list text file is available at <install location>\Resources\Maritime\S-58IgnoreList.txt.


    Remove the pound sign (#) from the beginning of the line for each check you want to ignore.
