Currently working on a project that among other things requires displaying NOAA ENC for a web based intranet portal. We downloaded S-57 ENC data from NOAA site and successfully imported them into Postgres DB using "ogr2ogr". We now need to serve them up with the right colors and symbols that must follow S-52 standard.

I have looked at OpenCPN and ArcGIS-ArcMap and other desktop tools which have beautiful renditions of S-57 data with colors, daylight/ night and symbols. I would like to do the same for a web app that is served by GeoServer. The styling is hopefully accomplished using Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) files.

I've looked at Atlas Styler, OpenGeo Styler etc. Nice tools but i'd hate to hand-craft them as there are a ton of layers and features, not to mention validating all of them to get it right. It would be nice if there is a way to download or import SLD files from good sources that correspond to S-57 layers. What is the least painful way to render ENC data on Web?
