Le choix difficile de la cartographie électronique. Which to choose ? Raster ? Vector ? What costs, for which application, how to Navigation ? As many questions as most of you arise, and rightly. While visiting my website pages devoted to charting (¹) on my website achieves the full information and links to various suppliers, a synthesis is needed here. First of all, specify the types of charting related to applications that concern us : GPSNavX : raster charts only (Maptech BSB 4 and 5, old Softcharts, NOAA RNCs, CHS raster, NV. Raster charts To date, the choice of raster charts covering the world is relatively small.

Apart from the U.S., Canada, and some areas covered by the Swedish and German charting, raster charts offer less and less interest.

The shipping forecast is issued four times a day at 2300, 0500, 1100, 1700 UTC and covers a period of 24 hours from 0000, 0600, 1200 and 1800 UTC respectively. The waters around the British Isles are divided into 31 sea areas shown on the map. The forecast contains details of gale warnings in force, a general synopsis and sea-area forecasts containg forecast wind direction and force, weather and visibility. Gale warnings are issued as required throughout the day (for winds of Gale Force 8 or more). In the UK, the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) is responsible for the provision of Maritime Safety Information (MSI) to ships at sea, which includes the broadcast of warnings and forecasts.

The Met Office initiates warnings and prepares routine forecasts for dissemination on behalf of the MCA. Caution: The internet is not part of the Maritime Safety Information system and should never be relied upon as the only means to obtain the latest forecast and warning information.

Thomas Knauf     SeaTalk Technical Reference. Unidirectional SeaTalk => RS232 Interface This simple unidirectional interface circuit inverts the SeaTalk signal to make it readable by the PC serial port: Bidirectional SeaTalk <=> RS232 Interface For bidirectional communication the circuit has to be extended by a second transistor: A PC-board may be obtained from Frank Wallenwein. SeaTalk Monitor The following piece of C-code gives an example of how to collect and process SeaTalk data.

"If you imagine it's possible, someone else is already trying to doing it, or has already done it. " The Installer. This was how I left my musing on the fictitious open source Celestronic M1 chart plotter system. I wasn't aware at the time how extensive the efforts were by an ever increasing cabal to build these types of systems. My screen display was photoshopped, the ones below are real. Another aspect of the Celestronic story was to illustrate how tentative marine electronics manufacturers have been in adopting new technologies, although this has certainly improved over just the past few years. This all started with a somewhat cryptic comment left on the Celestronic post by "Practical Pirate. " The Raspberry Pi, receives that NMEA data from the Arduino or your current systems via USB, and does real time updating of browser pages accessible to PC's, tablets, and other mobile devices via WiFi.

Now that we have met the Arduino, it's time to talk a bit about shields. De:Navigation program – OpenSeaMap-dev. Main Page – OpenSeaMap-dev. De:Bordnetz – OpenSeaMap-dev. Diese Seite beschreibt wie man Daten aus dem Bordnetz auf dem Laptop sammeln kann. Die dringenste Frage ist meistens: Wie verbinde ich meine bestehende Infrastruktur mit dem Laptop/Smartphone. Die kurze Antwort ist: Jeder Hersteller verwendet unterschiedliche Stecker, kann aber meistens auch mit einem der standardisierten Protokolle umgehen.

Welche Geräte wie am besten zu verbinden sind wird je nach Hersteller in den folgenden Abschnitten erläutert. Es wird erst auf die Computerschnittstellen eingegangen und dann auf die Schnittstellen des Bordnetzes, da diese unterschiedlich funktionieren. Eine Schnellanleitung findest Du unter NMEA-Logger anschliessen. Sicherheitshinweis Die Hersteller von Navigationsgeräten achten auf hohe Wasserbeständigkeitsschutzklassen (IP67), damit im Falle des Kenterns oder Wassereinbruchs die Elektronik keinen Schaden nimmt. Laptop/Smartphone Schnittstellen Je nach Computer gibt es hier unterschiedliche Schnittstellen. Serielle Schnittstelle RS-232 Anschluss Stecker.

NMEA Java library. Introduction The Data Logger is an application to record and visualize ship data sent transfered via NMEA protocol. It currently supports the widely used NMEA 0183 protocol. Positions, headings and environmental data such a water depths or wind directions are displayed in different views based on OpenSeaMap data. This video gives a short overview of the OpenSeaMap Data Logger on a Windows 8 tablet. This screenshot shows a GPS only track off the coast of Netherlands.

This screenshot shows a track with depth in the Baltic Sea. This screenshot shows AIS support. New and Noteworthy Features Requirements 256MB RAM for the application OS: WinXP, Vista, Win7/8 (Linux x86/x64 available but not actively supported) Installation Instructions Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Use the provided Data Logger installer. Linux Make sure you have installed Java Unzip the Data Logger zip Note: due to licensing issues the bluetooth support in linux is not available Support License (c) Copyright Jens Kübler 2010, 2013.
