Description

To help data providers develop cutting-edge, integrated, fast and reliable chart viewing services to their users, we offer GeoView for the display of S-57 compliant data in accordance with the EU INSPIRE Directive.

The GeoView service allows for charts to be displayed on the World Wide Web and serves images of the operator's S-57 ENC / IENC charts. Maximum performance is ensured through integration of GeoWebCache, allowing a large number of concurrent users to use the service, without impacting the speed and quality. GeoView also allows display and download of raster (GeoTIFF) and other vector (ESRI Shape) charts.

The GeoView software enables the operators to provide rich and detailed chart information though the upload of additional charts (i.e. national, inland waterways etc.) and increased chart details (i.e. depth).

Whether chosen as a software license or a hosted solution, the GeoView WMS gives the operator a large degree of flexibility, with for example display of optional transparent land and/or water layers for integration with other maps and external chart data.

The basic GeoView service package includes a license to use the GeoView program license with associated documentation, unlimited support and future product upgrades as well as compatibility with the iPhone and iPad application NaVida Professional for mobile chart display. Consultancy services for customizing are available, providing operators with a low risk, low cost solution.
