Re: Up-to-date vector charts for OpenCPN - oeSENC

Thanks for your quick response. Yes, I've tried that and turned zoom weighting up to 5. See screenshot https://1drv.ms/u/s!AgLeDinx1ThVgqgCB2gMK4-DvYUXjA

Re: Up-to-date vector charts for OpenCPN - oeSENC

Yes, it looks that there no data or objects from Felixstowe Ferry on for up River Deben.

That's same on our copy here.

The used chart GB302052 comes in a scale of 1:45.000 and there are no further larger scaled charts for this place in the pack.

The same holds true for river Orwell - here the detailed charts for Ipswich are in place funny enough..

The more detailed GB40302A is not included. But does exist as a S-63 chart.
See the screenshot. So the data are there and are getting used by UKHO.
Looks like another example of this sad issue UKHO has to exclude some vector charts from their portfolio.
We will add this to the cases we claim already to include.

Does not make harm to send a polite mail to UKHO from your side as well.
There is room for improvement...

Thanks for the heads-up!

Hubert

Re: Up-to-date vector charts for OpenCPN - oeSENC

Thanks for your response. It's a little disappointing as our mooring is at Felixstowe Ferry, although not really a big problem as I mainly use opencpn for planning and have a chart plotter with navionics in the cockpit. Anyway off to France next week and the French charts look better!

Re: Up-to-date vector charts for OpenCPN - oeSENC

After updating my UK charts I have strange artifacts sprinkled over the display.
At some locations they show just at larger zoom levels in other locations they show at all zoom levels.
They show up in all display categories except for "Base".
OpenGL on/off makes no difference.
They only show in the UK chart set, but not for Sweden & Spain, for example.
I can't remember seeing them before the update....

What are those things? Do they respond to Object Query?

Thanks

By deactivating the features in Mariners standard one by one, I found that the problem setting is "Restricted area". With this feature deactivated, the artifacts disappears.
