SevenCs develops chart viewing tool

SevenCs has launched a new software tool called TMS ChartServer, which aims to increase the speed of electronic navigational chart viewing within software applications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The software uses ‘Tile Map Service’ (TMS) technology to allow users of maritime web and mobile applications – such as fleet monitoring, vessel tracking, and surveying software – to display maritime charts quickly within the program, whether full global chart coverage or smaller areas of interest are required.

The system provides pre-rendered electronic navigational charts (ENC) based on TMS principles and OpenStreetMap/Google tiling schemes (XYZ).

The TMS ChartServer allows for the import and display of S-57 and S-63 charts, and is compatible with OpenLayers or Leaflet. It is also available as a hosting service.

In addition to the server application, the package also comes with desktop applications for tile generation and chart installation. Command line tools are provided for automation of these functions.

The software comes with a chart library and tile database filled with the SevenCs’ small scale world  dataset, containing about 4,000 ports, Exclusive Economic Zones and Traffic Separation Schemes.{/mprestriction}
