(EGERSUND, Norway) — C-MAP, a leader in digital marine cartography for commercial vessels, has announced a new service, along with a number of improvements and features to its existing, next generation back-of-bridge voyage planning station.
C-MAP IMS integrates with C-MAP’s range of fleet management tools, simplifying onboard navigation and delivering insight to operations managers. Customers can enable only the modules needed, for a cost-effective and streamlined operation.
The addition of NAVAREA warnings is one of many new features and improvements that are available with the IMS 2.2.2 release.
NAVAREA Warnings Service
Compared to the standard, manual process for working with the World-Wide Navigational Warning Service (WWNWS) data, C-MAP’s NAVAREA Warnings Service delivers a convenient, automated and continually updated data set fully integrated with the crew’s existing voyage planning and weather routing workflow.
C-MAP’s NAVAREA Warning Service includes:
Global coverage of NAVAREA warnings
Global coverage of sub-area warnings
Coastal warnings for: Baltic, United Kingdom, Pakistan, Brazil, Australia, Argentina, South Africa, India, Japan, New Zealand and Norway, with additional regions available on request.
IMS overlays NAVAREA Warnings on the chart, supports search for NAVAREA Warnings along the route, and includes them on the Passage Plan Report. NAVAREA data is updated daily via internet or email. NAVAREA Warnings Service requires a subscription and is supported in IMS 2.2.2 and later.
