Denmark is striving to digitalise the maritime industry and now a project led by the Danish Maritime Authority and supported by the EU has taken a major step towards a global standard for digital data exchange. This was reported by the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) in a communiqué of 6 April 2017.
IALA’s Committee on e-Navigation have just agreed on a proposed guideline for specifications of digital data exchange. The guideline has been developed in DMA’s EfficienSea2 project. The new guideline will provide a common language on how to deliver digital data services and make it possible to use the same digital data stream across equipment and regions.
