Notice to mariners
Is there some way we can Automate or semi automate the application of NTM,s I estimate there are well over 10,000 NTM's to apply Perhaps NGA would pay me as a project
to do the work.
Each chart has a link to its NTM's
All NTM' are in the same format essentially a five column table
Column 1 Chart Number
Coumn 2 Action (add replace etc)
Column 3 Description
Columns 4 and 5 coodinates
It is a simple process to copy and paste into an Excel spreadsheet
Can a script parse the spreadsheet to take you to the correct location on the chart. Either for a layer overlay (which i do not support) or a manual correction to the image file. We can extract the image from the calibrated kap file to apply cahges but the problem is how do we easily apply the changes at the exact coodinates given. I know we can use of fashioned plotting method but that is going to be very time consuming.
We could build a database of common nav object as photoshop objects to apply to the correct coodinates.
Just an idea for comments I can think of ideas but do not have the skills to implement. Could this be a NTM plugin
