Jeppesen release latest details of C-MAP & C-MAP 4D cartography for recreational boaters

Jeppesen has announced the Spring 2012 Release of its popular C-MAP MAX and C-MAP 4D cartography, bringing a variety of significant enhancements and exclusive new data to recreational boaters across North America. C-MAP's 4D cartography provides the newest and most innovative navigation experience available, combining the three traditional dimensions with a fourth dimension of time in the form of consistent, periodic updates.

Jeppesen updates its electronic charts three times per year, and makes these updates and upgrades available to boaters through a variety of channels. The Spring 2012 Release includes a new 3D model with a brighter sun-viewable color palette for C-MAP 4D delivering a unique, enhanced 3D charting experience, together with key additions to Jeppesen's chart library that provide boaters with unique and useful information for cruising, fishing and sailing.

Highlights of the Spring 2012 Release include:

  • New AWOIS Wrecks Database for C-MAP 4D —  Boaters who frequent the East Coast, Great Lakes and Gulf of Mexico now have access to Jeppesen's new Automated Wreck and Obstruction Information System (AWOIS) database of more than 3,600 wrecks. Part of the new Sportfishing Value Added Data (VAD) for C-MAP 4D, this new wrecks database contains more information than is available on standard paper charts, including survey depth, wreck name, date the vessel was sunk and other related information. This information is valuable to fishermen, divers and undersea explorers, making your time searching for a new or favorite wreck easier and more fun.
  • High-Resolution Bathymetry for C-MAP 4D — The Spring 2012 Release provides East Coast and Gulf of Mexico boaters with Jeppesen's most detailed and accurate hi-resolution bathymetric charts ever. This proprietary data was compiled from multiple hydrographic sources and re-contoured to provide boaters with the optimum presentation on today's high-definition chartplotters.
  • High-Resolution Bathymetry for the Great Lakes — Jeppesen has added proprietary high-resolution bathymetric charts to its C-MAP 4D coverage for the Great Lakes (excluding Lake Superior, Lake Huron and Georgian Bay). These charts include shaded depth areas and dense depth contouring, making them ideal for sportfishing. In addition, three new Spring 2012 C-MAP MAX chart titles have been introduced covering Lake Michigan (NA-M050.00), Lake Erie (NA-M053.00) and Lake Ontario (NA-M054.00), providing superior bottom contour detail for those who boat and fish these waters.
  • New C-Marina Port Plans for U.S. West Coast — The Spring 2012 Release delivers 228 marinas updated with new C-Marina Port Plan charts. These proprietary charts show marina docks and facilities with the highest level of detail and are great for vacationing boaters and long-distance cruisers. These additions span the U.S. West Coast, with 203 new marinas in California and 25 in Washington State, bringing our North American portfolio of C-Marina Port Plans to more than 1,000.
