It doesn't seem possible to drag and drop a gpx file into ocpn. Or at least I didn't succeed to do it.

Re: Feature Requests

Philippe..

this just came into my mind as the closest approach to "stare at the GPX and it opens in OCPN".
Wishful thinking or a feature request....

Re: Feature Requests

Lady Rover, you yourself did not vote for it either! That's a free vote! Then you need others to vote. Everyone who is registered gets 3 votes per day. Your item is currently "Very Low" http://willkamp.com/opencpn/flyspray...desc&pagenum=3

So help the Lady get this item "vetted" (more than 4 votes). The bar is set pretty darn low right now, but will go up significantly once we hit 20 "vetted" items. There are 14 vetted items right now. http://willkamp.com/opencpn/flyspray...index&switch=1

Re: Feature Requests

Hey just voted. Did not see the voting option on the mobile.

Now I dropped the hook in Hoorn (NL), cooked dinner and reved up the PC ;-)

Btw. Can only people registered to Flyspray vote? That might limit the audience, no?

Thanks for the hints rgleason!

Re: Feature Requests

Gentlemen, may I make you a request for the lights shown on charts.
Personally I would favor the old representation of the lights and no circle around the lights, or at least a possibility to represent one or the other.
This would definitely clarify the chart representation and not encumber the screen as it is presently.
Best Regards

Re: Feature Requests

I would like to see the ability to temporarily filter out AIS Class B targets. My main sailing area is San Francisco Bay. There are times during large sailboat races that there is way too much clutter on the screen from Class B targets. This can make it difficult to pick out more important targets - ships, tugs, ferries. When this feature is engaged, there should be a very noticeable indicator on the screen so it does not accidentally stay on longer than intended.

Re: Feature Requests

I would like to have the ability to show larger (or somehow visually different) icons for large vessels that will always have right of way. In San Francisco Bay, my stomping grounds, this would be ships and large tugs.

I realize there is the feature of icons showing the "real" size of the vessel if you hover a mouse, but this is not what I am looking for. On crowded days with lots of traffic/targets, I want to quickly notice vessels that will have right-of-way over my sailboat. Currently ships look exactly the same as ferries. I realize Class B icons have a slightly different look. A larger/longer/different color icon would be the way to go for ships and large tugs.

Re: Feature Requests

Are you aware about the "Attenuate Less Critical AIS Targets" option of AIS?
It ss thought for situations you describe.

Btw.: there isn't anything in the COLREGs that state something like "the right of way for bigger vessels". A vessel can be for example in a TSS or have a restricted maneuverability being therefore the "stand on vessel", and all this is independent from size. "Stand on" is not the same as "right of way". The latter does not exist for vessels. But you will know all this....

Re: Feature Requests

I was not aware of this Attenuation control. This sounds perfect. Thanks for pointing it out.

Sorry for using the incorrect term of "right of way." That is of course the commonly used vernacular for "stand on vessel." My main point is that in locations like SF Bay, ships and tugs greater than 1600 tons are the big dogs. They go where they need to go and everyone else must stay out of their way. I would like to see those vessels show up in a more highlighted fashion.

Re: Feature Requests

Gdavids You can also enable the "Menubar" to have quicker access to the Ais settings. This may help

Dynamicaly load layers with charts

I have layers for the Netherlands with more then 10.000 points and this (as the manual also states) is sort of bringing down the performance of OpenCPN ;-)
When trying to show the data stored with a specific point, it can take some time to get it visible.

For the Netherlands I use self-generated rastermaps (.kap-files) generated from Open Street Map. And I created layers (gpx-files) from available open data, like buoys and mooring-spots.

It would be nice to be able to create layer-files somehow that are "coupled" to the underlying charts.
For example I have a ONC-Ned_1304.kap-file, and it would be nice if then dynamicaly a ONC-Ned_1304.gpx would be loaded.
The number of visible/loaded points could then dramatically go down.
I could then "distribute" the points from the layers, that now cover the whole of the Netherlands, over the 200+ rasterfiles.

This could be done based on the filename of the charts (like in my example).

Or maybe by a "indexing" function in OpenCPN that would run once through the gpx's and then "know" when to show which layer-files, like it knows that after indexing the charts.
That would be the better solution I guess, because then you could still have layers that would cover the whole of the Netherlands (in my case) beside layers that would cover only a small area.
