S-412 Product Specification Information
S-412 is a vector and gridded product specification that is under development by the Ocean Prediction Center, on behalf of the Expert Team on Maritime Safety Services (ETMSS) of JCOMM. This product specification will outline the content, structure, and metadata needed for creating a fully compliant S-412 dataset that will be compatible as an overlay, with future electronic navigation systems including Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS).
S-412 is being developed within the framework specification defined by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) S-100 Universal Hydrographic Data Model and the International Standards Organization (ISO) 19100 series of standards. This product specification will be primarily intended for encoding maritime weather and sea condition analyses and forecasts for situational awareness, planning purposes and hazard mitigation.
