(EGERSUND, NORWAY — October 4, 2007) Jeppesen Marine, a provider of digital navigation products, has announced a new C-Map chart catalog. The new features aim to make ordering and managing electronic navigational charts (ENCs) easier for Jeppesen Marine’s customers.
“As a major distributor of ENCs, we have a great source of user feedback. We discovered that planning the needed chart portfolio and ordering the correct ENCs were obstacles for end-users, so we determined to do something about it,” said Jeppesen Marine marketing manager Willy Zeiler.
One improvement, the new Dynamic Licensing concept, allows the navigator to obtain necessary charts, updates and licenses in seconds without a preordering process. Costs are controlled via pre-set budgets and spending limits, allowing an immediate summary of the portfolio cost.
With the C-Map Chart Catalogue, it is possible to import C-Routes from C-MAP OceanView, as well as name an ENC code on the individual ENC cell. The ENCs include more information and names on the overview chart, and simple search and help functions.
