S63-Charts Netherland / Ijsselmeer

Hi guys,

I just try to find out how I can use openCPN for my needs. One point is that I want to use vector-charts for my main sailing-area which is the Netherlands and the Ijsselmeer in particular.

I know that there are S57-charts available for free (I already tested them within openCPN), unfortunately these charts do not contain depth-data.

So I'm looking for S63-Charts for this area, but I only found proprietary charts offered by Navionics for example.

Does anybody know where to get non-proprietary S63-charts for the region mentioned above?

regards
Karl

Re: S63-Charts Netherland / Ijsselmeer

Good afternoon,

In Europa ENC charts for the inland waterways will be supplied for the shipping free of charge.

The charts sets are not yet completed. But the charts of the Delta Area and Westerschelde to Antwerp are already available in a high resolution (6).

The charts for the Ijsselmeer and the Waddenzee are also available but not in the highest resolution. Rijkswaterstaat informed me that they are working on it.

The charts can be downloaded from:

ENC - Fairway Information Services

The charts of the Delta area are very detailed and are updated almost every fortnight.

Groet uit Zeeland,


Bram
