A New Era for Raster Charts from OceanWise

By [email protected] - 7th January 2016 - 16:57

OceanWise has developed a set of specialist tools and methodology to identify specific content from Raster Charts. OceanWise has created a product, which can be used seamlessly alongside terrestrial data and as a result is a more consistent and useful dataset for customers. The first paper nautical chart was scanned and georeferenced over three decades ago and is difficult to use efficiently within GIS software and map making solutions. Mainly due to the chart being designed for use as a finished map in isolation. The new product Raster Charts XL aims to solve this issue and OceanWise is now rolling it out as an optional upgrade to its existing Raster Chart data products initially for UK waters before focusing on updating its entire global holdings.
