I like this idea. So, custom s52 color definition config files would be in RGB but default would adhere to strict standards. Admittedly, this is beyond my ability to implement.

Docs

Will...

These files are multi-meg PDFs, not really good for casual online browsing. I imagine a "resources" tab on the site, with 3 levels of subdivision:

1. User level stuff
2. Advanced
3. Ultra-geek.

All of the content would be downloadable docs, for later offline reference.

This shows my bias toward offline reference material, downloadable, and thus available wherever one may cruise. The best places have sand, warm clean water, and no WiFi

PLIB colors...

Pete/Will....

Great minds, etc.....
I had this feature in the code very early on, since it took me some months to get a handle on the CCIE color transform, and I just wanted to draw pretty pictures.

Could be added back simply.

Dave

mmmm, I will be in Hawaii tomorow...warm and sand sound good!

Can you email me the pdfs? I will see what I can do with them.

And yes, do please add the RGB alternate config back. I'd love to perfectly emulate some of the nicer raster chart palettes.

Yum...

The baby buttock tint of land areas on French SHOM charts seems close to
CCIE 31LANDA0.3530#0.3600#80.00#brown#

If you can find the links to the original documents it might be best/easiest to put a link back there.

Turning the deep sea white was easy. But reading S52RAZDS didn't give me a clue on how to turn the deep-sea soundings black, and what is the color control for the gray-with-a-dash of rose obstruction areas.
BTW, this is part of the fairway into my home harbour...

Showing currents ...

In the region of "Capecod" (Boston Providence) the currents chart is surprising !

For soundings colors , you can play with "SNDG2" and "DEPMD" values . The first for depth < safety depth and the second for depth > safety depth
but it seams that there are linked

To turn deep sea white I use "DEPDW" . the same for you ?

Compiling for Arm?

Hi I am trying to compile open cpn on am arm device running Debian Lenny.

The device is my Android mobile phone!

I am looking at Compiling in Ubuntu |

cvs -dserver:anonymous@opencpn.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/opencpn login

##Just hit enter when it asks for a password##

The above just silently fails.

So I downloaded the tarball from here Download OpenCPN |

That goes OK I can run ./configure successfully

However make fails;
g++ internal error :killed program ; (program cc1+)

Is there any reason for it to fail on arm hardware? Is this the best place to ask this question?

Thanks

Sam

30CHGRD is the feature you're looking for I believe.

Does anyone have a link to the pdfs Dave was referring to?

A quick kook around the net for similar problems indicates that, perhaps, the problem is lack of memory on your phone. gcc (g++) requires quite a lot of resources. If this is the case, you can try to cross compile on another box.
I have never had to do that myself, so you can find the instructions as easy as I.

For CVS make sure you have cvs installed, then try this:
cvs -z3 -dserver:anonymous@opencpn.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/opencpn co -P opencpn

Tell us how you get along!

Thomas

It is ! I can now turn deep sea soundings black, but then that turns formerly 'conspicuous grey' features like bridges black as well. Can't have your cake and eat it too.
BTW, the obstruction areas are color-coded by NODTA.

The softer colours are more similar to raster charts and quite pleasant on the eye I guess.. I found the following web page regarding the colouration of official ECDIS systems, and it's just like Dave says (and OpenCPN does)..

Let me add that I also totally agree with Dave (message 320 above), and that I am totally in favor of an ENC-compliant OpenCpn.
Simply, for planning cruises at home, and in non-critical environments, I enjoy the more raster-like palette, and will agitate for a tool to allow users to create their own palette.
