We did choose this approach to assure a clean separation between Open Source and closed part due to restrictions licensing implies.

ok, get it now. Was assuming it was an independent firm.

Re: Quality of Australia OpenCPN Charts

I have had a few issues with missing or incorrect information shown on the AusENC charts for my area (SE Tasmania) and have generally found the Aus Hydrographic Office to be very responsive for requests for additions and corrections. The only knock-back I got was for navigation marks in unsurveyed areas (eg the Huon River). Has anyone asked the AHO to add the Stark Bay marks to the AusENC?
