Land "Charts"

Are there any Land "charts" available? I have a good set of CM93 charts, but since they don't showup until you zoom in it would be helpful to have an overview chart with the cities/highways etc.

thanks.

You could use GE2KAP to produce your own Google Earth "charts" of the areas you're interested in.

Re: Land "Charts"

Charts you get from OpenStreetMap.
Next step is creating tiles and geo-reference those. There should be some tools already available.
And have a look at the OpenCPN manual. It gives some hints and help.

Thanks - I've used GE2KAP which is pretty simple to use. OpenStreetMaps looks good, but the steps are much more complicated.

Also I had missed this page (for others who find this thread later): Chart Conversion | Official OpenCPN Homepage


Thanks!
