IENC buoy overlay available in small download files

ChartWorld and CEACT have launched a functionality to download buoy overlays for the Inland Electronic Navigational Charts (IENCs) of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).

CEACT (Channel ECDIS, AIS & Course Trajectory) offers navigation software for towboats and workboat operations within the US inland river system. ChartWorld is a value-added reseller of USACE.

A download button within CEACT software allows for updating all river charts, plus now the new buoy overlay.

ChartWorld checks all data prior to its conversion into small size packages and automatic distribution. The digital chart agent says that the compressed files have less than a quarter of their original size. This, it adds, guarantees that all chart data is loaded correctly and reduces the number of unsuccessful download attempts. ChartWorld warns that such incidents might occur when using a standard RSS feed from an unofficial source.
