mCloud-data usage in OpenCPN 5.0

Hallo,
i am using OpenCPN 5.0 with MBTiles-Charts by OpenSeamap (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/...eaMap#Download) for european waters.
It works fine, but i am missing currents, tides and depth lines/data e.g. as overlays.
Do you have an idea how to use/integrate the mcloud-data
(depth-data: https://www.mcloud.de/web/guest/such..._sort%3Dlatest)
and current/tide-data
(https://www.mcloud.de/web/guest/such...ort%3Dlatest)?
kind regards, Frank

Re: mCloud-data usage in OpenCPN 5.0

The bathymetry can relatively easy be extracted through e.g. Mapproxy or QGIS. However, you need some knowledge about geoservices/programming. If you want to give it a try, probably easiest solution is to load the WMS (Web Map Service) into QGIS. Then save it as mbtiles in QGIS. There are simple tutorials for both these steps. Here is the
WMS address you need for loading it in QGIS. Adding contour lines or soundings is more challenging but possible, with some more time..
