This paper briefly outlines ENCs as a digital nautical chart, produced by National Hydrographic Office (HO)according International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) specifications S-57 Edition 3.1. Production of ENCs is based on the theory of multiscale data management (usage bands). Multiple representations of ENC data is controlled by SCAMIN attributes. A solution to the problem of multiscale data management as a part of ENC data production for archipelagic sea areas, using the East Adriatic Coast as an example was presented. This solution is based on a long-standing experience in the production of paper charts and recently ENC production for eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, which is supposed to be the second largest archipelagic area in the Mediterranean. Finally, a new usage band scale range, compilation scale for all navigational purposes and method of using SCAMIN attributes for archipelagic seas were proposed.
