DNC Chart Viewing

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know what software is used to view the DNC Charts on this website: Digital Nautical Chart. I have tried Maptech's chart navigator and Arcreader, but no luck. Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jeff

Thanks, I had already downloaded Global mapper, but hadn't tried it. Are you just getting a little strip of land in the middle of the screen or do I need to download a bunch of DNC's to fill it in?

Thanks

Jeff

Why use DNC's ? Why not just use ENC's.
Just curious.

I found that there is more Caribbean coverage put in the DNC's, unless you know of other ENC's out there.
