The visualization of bathymetric data and associated uncertainty in electronic nautical charts is important when it comes to plan and monitor a ship's route safely. However, a study confirmed that the current uncertainty representation is not very intuitive and does not provide clear orientation for mariners. To improve this situation, Fraunhofer IGD proposed novel visualization solutions for the next generation S-101 ENC standard, which are summarized in this article.
