Export To S57 (Coverage)
Converts ArcC/Info coverages to S-57 object files.
S-57 is a data standard developed by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) to be used for the exchange of digital hydrographic data.
The Output Log File will be created in the process and then holds the report of the export.
The Input Workspace in which the S-57 files are located must contain coverages or the directory cannot be selected.
The workspace containing the coverage to be converted (exported).
|Folder ; Workspace|
Contains the report of the export process.
The folder that will contain the S-57 object files.
The following stand-alone script demonstrates how to export a coverage to S-57 format.
