Efficient Chart Selection & Management - Automatic Routing - Online Chart Ordering & Chart Updating for your ECDIS / ECS

ChartBrowser is a custom digital chart catalogue application that allows you to import, calculate or manually create routes, select charts (based on your route), manage your existing chart inventory, and create a basket file that can be used to order selected products directly from ChartWorld. Orders can be executed online via E-mail directly from your vessel. Delivered chart data such as permits and chart updates (e.g. in S-63 format) can be received directly from within ChartBrowser on board. This data then can be exported to be applied to ECDIS/ ECS systems. The digital chart catalogue can be updated automatically by means of the ChartWorld update service or via catalogue download from our HTTP server.

New features with release of ChartBrowser version 2.1.x, November 2013

ChartWorld eNtM Update Service
This new online service provides weekly publicized updates of Admiralty Notices to Mariners which can be received via ChartBrowser E-mail module. Received NtM data will be processed automatically to generate a weekly check list of non-applied NtM data based on your paper chart collection on board. The check list and NtM data including tracings, block charts or diagrams can be printed and used for on board routines or port control procedures. Receiving weekly eNtM updates requires an eNtM license for your vessel(s). Please contact ChartWorld This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to have your vessel(s) registered for this service.

ChartWorld S-63 Pull Service
As a complementary service to the existing S-63 chart update service in push mode, ChartWorld offers a pull service. On board, this service allows the mariner to individually control the weekly update provision of licensed charts. By means of the new Pull Service Request a list of charts to be updated within a user-defined period can be sent to ChartWorld. For example, a mariner can determine to receive updates for the current voyage only. Then a request to instantly receive updates for the complete chart coverage can be sent to ChartWorld at any time. With the weekly chart updates information about possibly pending updates for temporarily non-updated charts is provided. Outdated charts are indicated by a red update status in the inventory of ChartBrowser.

ChartBrowser version 2.1.x can be executed in three different modes:
  • aboard a vessel to order and update charts online via E-mail communication
  • at the shipping company to verify orders from your vessels
  • in standard mode to manually generate orders without any online order/updating facility
