oeRNC - licensed Raster charts for OpenCPN

We can announce a new plug - in the oeRNC chart plug-in - giving access to new chart sources for OpenCPN and covering additional sailing areas.

In the raster portfolio you will find fine charts from Explorer Charts, the famous sets covering the Bahamas, and from Imray. In the latter case we add an alternative source for Eastern Caribbean and the Adriatic Sea in raster format.
Plus closing an important gap with Imray raster charts for Greece, Turkey and the Eastern and Southeastern border of the Mediterranean.
More than 600 single charts.

The composition of the chart sets follows the content of the cruise guides from those editors and make them a nice complement for the guides. They work without the books as well, of course.

We are working to include more sources in the future, same as on the oeSENC, the vector side.

The oeRNC plug-in 1.0 is available from the OpenCPN download page, the oeRNC charts at o-charts.org starting from today.

A big thank you to all participating in the design, implementation and testing of the plug-in. Without to forget the translators.

Hubert

Re: oeRNC - licensed Raster charts for OpenCPN

All..
Thanks to Hubert and the staff at O-Charts for this update.
And.. to Dave for the plugin and other coding.
The oeRNC_pi is not yet obvious to find. The link to oeRNC_pi is located inside the Plugins downloads oeSENC button.
Or here https://opencpn.org/OpenCPN/plugins/oernc.html

When the dust has cleared after these endeavors I also think we can slowly proceed to other raster charts where ENC's are not yet available.
I know some special charts up here around. Others may have ideas as well?
Håkan

Håkan,

where did you look for the download? At the manual? There is some work still to do.

One will find the download as always for all plug-ins at o-charts.org/downloads

And for fun some examples from the Eastern Med.
(As always: red outlines = large scale chart at zoom)

Hubert..
Download page is now fine also for me. I suppose a page update was the trick instead of the cached view.

Re: oeRNC - licensed Raster charts for OpenCPN

Not very impressive. I prefere the good old CM93 (they are enc and not raster).
BTW if someone is looking for the sources: https://github.com/bdbcat/oernc_pi

Re: oeRNC - licensed Raster charts for OpenCPN

Rafi...


This one has a different name:


"oernc-pi"


You may like to use a GUI tool like "synaptic", to make it super clear what is going to happen on upgrades.


Good luck
Dave
