JRC ECDIS Models Update with Admiralty Info. Overlay

July 24, 2012

A software update now makes the Admiralty Information overlay available on all current JRC ECDIS models.

The Admiralty Information Overlay, a free service to Admiralty Vector Chart Service customers, is a simple way to view the most comprehensive and up-to-date chart information when navigating with electronic navigational charts (ENCs).

The Overlay is the only service available to include worldwide Admiralty Temporary and Preliminary Notices to Mariners and new ENC Preliminary Notices to Mariners, which identify navigationally significant differences between ENCs and Admiralty paper charts.

Mariners the world over rely on Admiralty updates to help them navigate safely, via the weekly ‘Notices to Mariners’ publication, which is used to manually update paper charts. The Overlay does the same job automatically, displaying the same trusted information directly over the ENC, to make passage planning significantly more efficient.

The Overlay is also the only service to include the results of the Admiralty Assurance Programme; the comprehensive review of the world’s ENCs undertaken by Admiralty in order to identify and resolve navigationally significant differences with existing paper charts.

The Overlay has been developed to support Admiralty Vector Chart Service - the most comprehensive official ENC service available. It is available free to Admiralty Vector Chart Service customers and can be accessed on a PC using Admiralty e-Navigator, as well as via a growing number of ECDIS systems.

Tamiho Shinya at JRC, said, “Admiralty sets the benchmark for accurate ENCs with the Admiralty Vector Chart Service. Most of our ECDIS customers rely on Admiralty data for their primary navigation, so it’s important for them to have access to this additional information in a simple, integrated way."
