Transas Data Service: Five Years on the Market
Transas marks the fifth anniversary of its Transas Admiralty Data Service (TADS) providing a comprehensive and official chart data service to the market.
Transas, an ECDIS manufacturer, in conjunction with the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) launched Transas Admiralty Data Service (TADS) in 2008. TADS is based on 100% official ENC data from the UKHO converted in SENC format and optimized for use on Transas ECDIS.
Since its launch, TADS has evolved into a complete set of data services required by mariners for voyage planning and navigation purposes, and today it’s far more than just official ENC data service. TADS now includes Admiralty digital publications, weather services and Admiralty Information Overlay with T&P Notices to Mariners. Additionally, Transas provides consultancy services for the mariner which offer a focused & professional way to handle charts and updates.
To fully utilize TADS functionality, Transas offers Navi-Planner 4000, a charts and data management application. This allows for voyage planning and assessment, and can be used either onboard as a back of the bridge application, or ashore as a management tool.
Transas Admiralty Data Service together with Navi-Planner offers significant benefits for users and was immediately recognized by users as a powerful official data service.
