After testing and trying to set up the color names in 'chartsymbols.xml' I am a bit curious:
defines three depth
categories: 'Shattow Depth', 'Safety Depth' and 'Deep Depth'
b) The page at 'https://ininet.org/presentation-library.html?page=46' defines the various color names and I will use them and the description as reference:
'DEPSC' is defined as 'safety contour of low accuracy in position' and currently 'DEPSC' defines the contour between 'Safety depth' and 'Deep depth'
'SNDG1' is defined as 'for deep soundings, greater than safety
'SNDG2' is defined as 'shallow soundings, less than or equal to the safety
Setting any of the 'SNDGn' colors does not seems to have any effect at all in OpenCPN
c) The pictures on the page reference by Håkan earlier shows contour lines between all the depth categories defined in OpenCPN.
Now I'm getting confused:
- How are the remaining contour lines between the categories generated (but 'DEPSC')?
- Which color code should be used where.
- Should not 'SNDG1' define the contour between 'Safety depth' and 'Deep depth' (currently 'DEPSC')
Am I confused because English
is my second language, is there a malfunction
here somewhere or have I simply missed something?
