The Esri S-57 viewer is now available for all ArcGIS 10.2 users! The S-57 viewer is a free Esri add-on for the ArcGIS for Desktop product. S-57 IHO Transfer Standard for Digital Hydrographic Data is the encoding standard that is primarily used for electronic navigational charts (ENCs), as well as inland ENC (IENC) and additional military layers (AML).
