C-Map (purchased primarily on "chips" for dedicated plotters and also on CD-ROM for computer applications). C-Map NT+ cartography
is crisp and data-rich. Notice that the entrance buoys do not have their characteristics visible in this view. Most dedicated
plotters and computer systems display this sort of data as an option, which keeps chart clutter to a minimum.
Navionics and Garmin (purchased only on "chips" for dedicated plotters). Navionics and Garmin Charts offer a different
color scheme. Of course the quality of display will depend primarily on your plotter's capability (color/bw, size, etc.).
Navionics and Garmin will only run on dedicated plotters.
Transas and Passport (purchased on CD-ROM for software applications). Transas and Passport charts are another example of
high quality vector cartography. Notice that the soundings in this example are displayed in meters and that channel markers
show only the marker numbers. (The characteristics of any marker can be called at any time just by placing your cursor over
the mark.) Nobeltec's flavor of software (Visual Navigation Suite, or VNS) will display Passport soundings in any measurement,
while the Transas flavor will only allow the metric measurement. VNS will also allow you to switch between different palettes,
so that the example below can resemble almost any example above.
