Many of the ArcGIS Maritime tools give you an option of viewing a log file at the end of processing. These log files summarize what events occurred and on which features. Some of these tool log files are generated in an XML format that is automatically transformed by an XSL style sheet. The XSL style sheet basically takes values stored in an XML document and presents them to you in an Internet browser in an easier-to-read format, like a table with rows and columns.
You can view the log files by going to the location where they are stored and right-clicking to open them with a program of your choice. You can also set up Microsoft Internet Explorer as your default browser to automatically open when you click Yes to the message that prompts you to view the log file after a process is complete.
Log files are written to <Installation location>\Users\<UserLogin>\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Production<version>\Desktop\Maritime Charting\.
