C-MAP/USA Named National Distributor For Sea Plot Software
In a move to provide customers with a new medium for displaying its electronic charts, C-MAP/USA has announced that it has become a national distributor for SeaPlot software, an integrated navigation and charting software package that allows users to display C-MAP charts on their IBM-compatible computers, according to Kenneth Cirillo, operations manager of C-MAP/USA. SeaPlot displays C-MAP charts in full color—the charts' depth contours can even be color-coded. As the user zooms in or out, or pans left or right, SeaPlot automatically displays the chart that features the best coverage of the area. SeaPlot also supports infinite levels of magnifications; users are not restricted to four or five predefined levels. Chart information such as depth contours, restricted areas, and chart labels can be turned on or off depending on how much detail the user wants.
Other features of SeaPlot software include sophisticated route planning capabilities for setting and saving waypoints; a unique depth sounder interface for displaying and saving color-coded depth points; an Event Log that can be edited and printed; and an autopilot interface. SeaPlot software is designed and manufactured by OceanTech, a division of Seattle-based BioSonics, Inc., that has been selling its computer- based SeaPlot integrated navigation and charting systems to the commercial fishing market for five years.
