Nowadays maritime charts are very often used in combination with, or as a backdrop for, other geo-spatial data such as offshore constructions, sea state, AIS targets, weather, etc. Unlike in a navigation system, such environments consist of several seats or clients where the use of a server is very beneficial, i.e. charts are maintained centrally at one location and all users view the same charts.
Especially for systems that place high demands on the chart display, i.e. flexible chart-display configuration or non-rectangular chart projections, the WMS ChartServer is an ideal solution. This may apply to Vessel Traffic Systems or Naval Combat Management systems.
WMS Chart Server can also be used for web-based or mobile applications like vessel tracking, fleet operation or surveillance.
