Hi everyone,

Here in the Netherlands ENC S-57 data is freely available for inland waterways. However, I am looking for S-57 data on the Rhine and am wondering if anyone has any idea where this would be available from.

Thanks

Josie

I take it you mean the Rhine *outside* The Netherlands?

Quite right Hans, I do indeed mean outside the Netherlands. I have discovered that unlike the Netherlands, which makes water data freely available, Germany does not do this. Thus I guess we are going to buy some .000 files for the Rhine now. I never realised until now how nice it is that here in Holland we have data freely available to us!

unfortunately german data isn't free. but perhaps the accuracy of openstreetmap data is ok for your purpose?
