Abstract
    Computers cannot build good charts from raw survey data. Future chart information needs to include cartographic expertise. Rapid situation awareness is a key issue in terms of the advantages of dynamic symbology and more intuitive projections. Neither of these issues are new, but we should be examining them more closely in the context of ENCs. It is a mistake to think that the way ENCs are produced and regulated now will be fixed into the future.
