People should know that this program linearizes any non-linear calibration of WCI charts. A great feature of MapCal and SeaClear is that one can use inaccurately drawn images
and change the calibration according to the actual position of the features drawn. For example, one can calibrate a chart of a narrow channel so that one's GPS
position is always shown correctly with regard to to shore featurs (rocks, coves, etc.) even though the original chart is inaccurate and dangerous to use. Put differently, one can warp the latitude and longitude lines. This transformation program throws all this away.
Is there any plan to make OpenCPN
capable of reading WCI charts directly?
