Jeppesen Marine is heralding the unveiling of C-MAP 4-D electronic charting. The "4-D" (fourth dimension) refers to time.

Users will be able to update, choose or change their electronic charts at any time without having to buy new cartography cartridges, says Michelle Buckalew, Jeppesen senior marketing manager. C-MAP 4-D content will be updated at least twice per year, says Buckalew.

Other features include True-View & Photos, Easy-Routing Technology, and Nautical Paper Charts (vector charts overlaid on 3-D images). The other half of C-MAP 4-D is the MAX segment, which includes features of C-MAP MAX charts, like 3-D viewing and satellite photos. Jeppesen expects C-MAP 4-D to be available in 2010. Pricing information was not immediately available. Contact: Jeppesen Marine, (303) 799-9090. www.jeppesen.com/lightmarine
