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 2.2.x, January 2015


Extended Product Portfolio for Ordering:
The new version offers an extended product portfolio. In addition to the digital chart products multiple nautical publications (digital / non-digital) of the UKHO and IMO can be ordered. For example users can order the UKHO digital products ADP and e-NP. These products can be ordered online directly via a ChartBrowser vessel installations. Updates of the new product portfolio will also be supplied via the known small weekly catalogue updates directly send on board. Due to these new products the ChartBrowser index card scheme to represent and select products has been extended and improved.


S-63 cumulative Exchange Set Export
S-63 chart updates which have been received via ChartBrowser on board can now be exported into one Exchange Set. This Exchange Sets is a cumulative collection of all received chart updates since the last registered AVCS media state. In follow users on board can simply import this one Exchange Set into the ECDIS instead on the single weekly delta Exchange Sets. 


S-63 ENCs: Update Status Report
Furthermore ChartBrowser now generates an Update Status Report of the complete licensed ENC collection. Alternatively this report can be generated for a particular route only (recommended for PAYS users). The Update Status Report outputs for each ENC the latest S-57 Edition and Update Number as well as information when the update has been received. Information regarding data export and AVCS media volumes are provided too. Outdated charts are indicated. This report can be printed and signed for Port State Control.


ChartBrowser 2.2.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
