The S-57 is an international standard for the description of nautical, hydrographic and bathymetric data. It serves the international exchange of digital data and products between the hydrographic organizations, manufacturers, seafarers and scientists. The best known application is the electronic navigational chart (ENC). The standard was adopted by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) in 1992 at the XIVth International Hydrographic Conference in Monaco. The S-57 is also part of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) performance standards for Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) .

S-57 version 3.1 was released in November 2000. Version 3.0 was published in November 1996 and remained in place for four years to facilitate the production of electronic maps and ECDIS.
