Area boundaries in Australian S63 and oeSENC charts

I subscribe to the AusENC S63 charts and to the Australian Vector Charts (oeSENC). Both of these have inconsistencies in the display of area boundaries, eg port limits, no-anchoring areas and ESSAs. I have attached a file with some examples of each.
My Vector Chart Display settings are: Graphics Style Paper Chart, Boundaries Symbolized and 4 Color.
Is there a way of improving this display?

Regards,

Andrew Boon

Re: Area boundaries in Australian S63 and oeSENC charts

Andrew,

which versions of S-63 and of oeSENC you are using?
Does OpenGL On/Off make a difference in the case of the S-63 examples?
I don't have AU S-63 installed right now.

I see the inverted tickers in your first (ESSA) example in oeEVC(oeSENC).
(We might call that the "down under effect") ;-)
The second screen shot is from plain S-57, the source material.

With respect to the HRBARE object, I don't see that neither on S-57. Nor in the Object query.

Re: Area boundaries in Australian S63 and oeSENC charts

G'day Hubert,
The version of S63 plugin displayed (Options/Plugins) is 1.12, but I had loaded the latest version (1.14). I re-loaded it and still 1.12 is displayed, so not sure what is happening there.
The oeSENC plugin in V3.0.
The only difference I can see with OpenGL on is that the line weight of the ESSA boundary changes. The direction of the ticks is unchanged.
How did you get your second screenshot? That is what I see with the same data set viewed in SeaPro Lite+ (plus 'ESSA' within the boundary).
Re HRBARE: sorry, I think that the northern boundary of the port area is missing from the chart. I will contact the AHO about that. SeaPro appears to assume that the port area extends up the River beyond the edge of the chart.

Regards,

Andrew

What does the log say about the version?

We have the source data in plain S-57 here as base for oeSENC/oeEVC
The second screen is plain S-57.

Re: Area boundaries in Australian S63 and oeSENC charts

From the log file:
"5:35:19 PM: PlugInManager: C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenCPN\plugins\s63_pi.dll
API Version detected: 111
PlugIn Version detected: 112"
I deleted the plugin using Windows 'Add or Remove Programs' (which displayed the installed program info 'OpenCPN S63_pi 1.14.1501'). Opened OCPN to check that S63 pi had gone - it had. Closed OCPN then re-installed plugin from file s63_pi-1.14.1501-win32 (1).exe.
Opened OpenCPN again and the log shows the same information as before, ie for V1.12.
Not sure where to go from here.

OK on the S57 data. That makes sense.

aboon...


The display anomalies you observe are indeed a bug in OpenCPN.
We will add this to our worklist, and plan to implement improvements in our next release.


Thanks for the feedback
Dave
