Marine Electronic Highway Project: The MIO Component


The Marine Electronic Highway (MEH) Demonstration Project aims to establish a regional mechanism in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore for enhanced maritime safety and marine environment protection. In cooperation with Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, a key aspect includes the production of Environment and Natural Resource Conservation and Management (ENRCM) - Marine Information Overlays (MIOs). A description of the current/evolving goals associated with ENRCM MIOs will be provided. More specifically, an explanation will be provided regarding the means/process of using CARIS software tools to convert existing environmental and marine conservation geospatial data into MIOs based on IHO S-57.
