Re: OPEN CPN Photocharts

OpenCPN does not support this format. Can you convert to kap? If you do, can you please report the differences (mainly file size)

I would be interested to know as I am considering developing a new chart format for opencpn which will reduce file size to 1/2 for normal charts, and much better 1/10th for imagery charts, while improving the speed at which the charts can be loaded and displayed.

Go to the Chartaid help page: ChartAid OpenCPN Users
and follow the steps. You should get a kap file.
