bsb to kap converter

I am looking for a BSB to KAP converter. There are hundreds of free BSB charts. How can I use them in OpenCPN?

Re: bsb to kap converter

BSB charts are KAP files. In a set of BSB charts you get .BSB files and .KAP files.
BSB files are a kind of information file for a group of KAP files.
KAP files are the actual charts.
I think OpenCPN does not care about BSB files. It will certainly work if they are not there.

Re: bsb to kap converter

BSB v3 = .Kap

The format US raster charts from NOAA/NGA and Canadian CHS files (nowadays) are being distributed.
Directly visible in OpenCPN.

Another example or sources are the New Zealand/LINZ charts.
Or Brazilian charts.

In the chart downloader are plenty sources. And the manual explains as well.
