Companies launch chart-updating service

ChartCo, Jeppesen and KH Charts announced that they will provide mariners with a method of updating official electronic navigational charts from Jeppesen via the ChartCo Select service.

As part of the arrangement, KH Charts also will provide Jeppesen customers with paper products, according to the companies.

The partnership will allow the transfer of Jeppesen Electronic Navigational Chart data and updates out to vessels using the proven ChartCo technology “at a fraction of the normal transmission costs,” according to the companies.

The companies said the approach, which will give mariners access to automatically updated ENC data from Jeppesen in System Electronic Navigation Charts or S-63 format, will make it simple and exceptionally cost-effective for vessels to maintain up-to-date ENC holdings.

"Navigators will have access to all required navigational data through one source," Jeppesen OEM strategic business manager Paul Elgar said in a statement. "By combining the most up-to-date electronic and printed chart data and bringing it to mariners through the industry's most trusted delivery source, this best-of-all-worlds partnership will eliminate obstacles and hassles commonly associated with chart compliance."
