CherSoft today announced a list of new features that will be provided in the final release of Nuno Navigator, their new consumer navigation application. Several features have been added since the public Beta release. These include:
- Track Log. See where you have been, and save useful bits for later.
- Anchoring Mode. See seabed features only when you need them.
- Chart Overview. Makes moving around the chart easier, and shows you more information about the charts themselves.
- Quick light recognition. Hover over a light on the chart and see a graphical display of its characteristics.
- Data Import and Export. Save your tracks, routes and places as GPX data or KML (Google Maps). Load data from lots of sources into Nuno Navigator
- Inland ENC. Nuno Navigator will work with digital charts for inland waterways, published by the Army Corps of Engineers. (http://www.agc.army.mil/echarts/)
The final release date for Nuno Navigator has yet to be decided.
Simon Salter (Chief Executive) and members of the CherSoft team were in Egersund, Norway this week visiting Jeppesen as the team look to broaden partnerships with commercial hydrographical companies. CherSoft originally met Egil Aarstad of Jeppesen in South Africa at Hydro 09 and they have been working together closely to identify new business development areas.
Simon was very happy with the visit, saying “The two companies are very complementary with solutions for the global hydrographic community and this should enable a very close working relationship for the future. We are especially focussed on our tidal products and solutions that are already gaining a wide audience in Europe”
Egersund is situated in a beautiful part of the world about one hour’s drive south from Stavanger. Frozen lakes, snow covered roads and rock strewn hills were all brilliantly lit by the arctic sun which, although bright, managed to impart no warmth at all. However it did provide a fantastic backdrop for our meeting with Jeppesen and we spent the whole day at their well appointed (and warm) offices which look out over the fjord. Many thanks to the Jeppesen team whose hospitality and interest certainly shone throughout the day.
A CherSoft consultancy team studying a replacement for the current UK Hydrographic Office ARCS production system delivered their report today.
