Jeppesen Donates Chart Tools to Makedonia Academy

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Jeppesen has donated a classroom supply of its C-MAP OceanView office chart and route planning systems to the Merchant Marine Academy of Makedonia (AEN Makedonias) in Greece.  The academy trains more than 100 officers yearly.

With Jeppesen’s C-MAP OceanView product, students at AEN Makedonias will use C-MAP Professional+ electronic charts in their PCs for familiarization and route planning.  Planning routes using C-MAP Professional+ allows the students to determine optimal routings, taking into account depth, speed and navigational aids, and even weather prognoses can be overlaid on the electronic charts.  Such knowledge is an important part of the overall ECDIS training requirements stipulated by the IMO during 2010.
