Electronic Charts - New site!
Electronic Charts represent the future of navigation, with
vector charts becoming
the standard on new vessels. Digital charts in vector format are
now found on most chart plotters and Electronic Chart Systems (ECS).
Navigator represents the most
cost effective, quality, vectorised charting and navigation
software for use on a PC.
Electronic Chart Display Information Systems (ECDIS) is the highest
standard of electronic chart available today. Transas, the company behind
the Tsunamis navigation system are world leaders in ECDIS technology and
the research and development at this level is apparent in Tsunamis at
a fraction of the cost.
Navigator is used by mariners at all levels, and is considered
by many to have the best charts and most professional operating system
on the market. Connect a GPS to your laptop or PC, and you have a precision
navigation tool that will provide you with the best this technology has
