Fugawi.com charts now available on OpenCPN
Canadian online chart service fugawi.com, has announced that in collaboration with OpenCPN, it has made its extensive selection of downloadable raster charts available to OpenCPN software enthusiasts worldwide.
This provides over quarter of a million OpenCPN (opencpn.org) users charts from fugawi.com for navigation on their Microsoft, Linux, Mac and Android devices.
Thanks to the joint efforts with the Fugawi team, OpenCPN now adds an extensive array of quality raster charts, such as those produced by Canadian Hydrographic Service, nv charts, Delius Klasing, Solteknik and other popular chart brands.
The OpenCPN built-in quilter tiles multiple raster charts into one in seconds, its developers claiming that it delivers the look and feel of a vector chart with smooth zoom and pan but with the unmatched detail and familiarity of paper charts. The fugawi.com raster charts available for OpenCPN include the official Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) charts of Canada; nv charts for the US, Europe, Bahamas, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Caribbean; Delius Klasing for Northern Europe and the Adriatic Sea in the Mediterranean; Solteknik Marine Charts of Sweden and Finland; Blue Latitude Press’ charts of Bahia and Sea of Cortez in Mexico; and NZ Mariner charts of New Zealand.
