Generate Depth Areas

Prepares depth area data for Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) and Additional Military Layers (AMLs). It updates depth areas that exist, creates depth areas as needed, and deletes depth areas that are no longer relevant. The depth areas depict the depth ranges between contours. This tool is designed to help in the creation and updates of data in a desktop production environment; it can be used in limited cases for an enterprise production environment.
