Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia was represented by Ivana Kordić and Mendi Čala. The topic of the meeting was presentation of new PRIMAR services and the current status of S-101 implementation. The first day covered the status of new members’ ENC cells, cooperation between regional electronic navigation centres, new methods and ENC distribution solutions, as well as current status of implementation of S-102 service (CHS). Current activities of working groups (HSSC11, S-101 PT4, ENCWG…) were also discussed. On the second day, a workshop was held on the subject of new generation of ENC according to IHO standard S -101. In the workshop, participants became acquainted with challenges of S-101 technology through data conversion, structural and attribute display of ENC geometry and topology, with particular emphasis on the safety and data protection of S-101 system. Thus, education and training of HHI staff continued, as well as good cooperation with PRIMAR, a regional coordination centre that provides availability of ENCs to end users.
