ECDIS Kernel SDK, ENC Production Tools & ECS Software
Developing professional maritime chart display applications,
Digital nautical chart production, maintenance and management, and
Applications such as inland navigation, portable pilot units, and naval patrol boats.
Last week, Frank Horch, Senator for Economy, has invited Jochen Rudolph for a round table discussion about funding programs in Hamburg at the SMM 2014.
Mr. Horch showed great interest in the SevenCs product range and took the opportunity to have a good look at the Chart Table displayed on the show. He was notably impressed after finding the marina where he keeps his sailing boat.
The partner of SevenCs in South America, Latincomp, has recently organized a public training course on CEACT navigation software. The training took place in Asunción, Paraguay, the center of the most important waterway in the South American continent.
CEACT (Channel ECDIS, AIS & Course Trajectory) is navigation software designed for professional towboats and workboat operations within the confined waterways of inland river systems. SevenCs has released a new 2.6.10 version of CEACT earlier this year.
The main shipping companies (Vale, Uabl, Horamar) signed up their crews to take part in the lessons. The interest of the companies was matched by the eagerness to learn the skippers showed during the training. More than 70 people followed the lessons and took actively part in the workshops held in between. The course was fully booked and new ones are already being scheduled.
Doubtlessly the introduction and training in CEACT, being the most widely used software for inland navigation, was a great success. Moreover, it became clear that more work and training in future will enable the users to take full advantage of all features CEACT offers and improve navigation safety and efficiency.
Sevencs, Latincomp and many local shipping companies are up to the challenge.
The newly released ChartServer 4.3 version allows more flexible configuration of the chart image and includes:
- ARCS support;
- Support of both Linux and Windows versions;
- Extended Chart Object Filtering;
- Support of all S-52 (ECDIS) chart settings;
- Support of multiple chart formats: S-57/S-63; ARCS; DNC; VMap; ARINC; DTED.
It also includes the newly improved chart loading and installation tool - Chart Handler.
ChartServer is a WMS server that enables the user to view nautical chart data (e.g. S-63 encrypted ENCs). It can be used in combination with or as a backdrop to other geo-spatial data layers (e.g. weather). ChartServer is specifically designed for performance oriented applications, generated to display chart data using web technology. ChartServer is developed in accordance with OGC requirements, making it the perfect tool for the integration with your application.
