What chart is this? There are a number of chart levels with more or less detail. This looks like an overview chart of east coast and Long Island area. It is not particularly detailed, especially in coastal areas.

Somewhat more detail will appear as you zoom in, but this particular chart probably won't get a lot more interesting. For smaller scale (more detailed) charts select those that have names beginning with US5.

If there are I will be interested.

Thanks

ENC charts are available for pretty much the entire world. While S57 format is the same the world over, essentially all countries other than US use encrypted version of the format. To support the encryption, application product must apply to IHO for specific per-product keys, and add custom implementation of key management and decryption module. This does require certain level of stability from the product and is on our schedule.

To be sure, ENC charts outside US are encrypted for a reason - they are only available for purchase. There are no free ENC downloads outside NOAA that we know of, except for a single ENC test cell of a small part of Great Barrier Reef , made available by Australian hydrographic office specifically for ENC testing.

Follow this link ( " + theTitle + " ) to the application that shows global ENC chart coverage.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Make sure to store it in a cool dry location until installation.

K just tested the us5 chart and it was still just outlines and no depths or symbols. Since I have time and space on my computer I downloaded another enc viewer and viewed the exact same chart in it here's what I got so it isn't getting the symbols and depths for some reason.....unless it's just me.Alpha testers wanted-screen-shot.jpg

What scale (zoom level) are you using to view this chart? Look at the bottom of the screen ("status bar"), the second item shows "scale". How does the display change as you go down to smaller scale? Also, what is the name of this chart cell?

If the nav symbols/items etc do not appear as you zoom in further, we may have a first reported bug.

I started at 1:15000 and went all the way to about 1:2000 nothing changed just zoomed into outlines and if you mean viewer for "chart cell" I am using mac enc for the other one. Heres a link MacENC™ - Marine Navigation & Charting Application for OS X
If you mean chart set it is #US5NY14M oyster bay - eatons neck

It should show quite a bit of detail at scales of anywhere from 50000 down to the smallest one. So, it is a first real issue. I have sent you a pm - if you don't mind forward us some information about your system.

Hey brak... I just started playing around and I'm noticing that cells aren't visible at all levels of zoom.

I've got US3WA01M and US3WA02M loaded. At the "overview scale" (1:1600000), I see a black screen with the cells outlined in red and the labels on gray backgrounds. Only when I zoom in to 1:4000000 do I actually see any chart. As I zoom in I get increasing levels of detail, which is great... but there should at least be some sort of sea/land displayed at the smaller scales.

Also could we have depths in fathoms please?

edit: the "smallest scale of visibility" seems to be different for different cells...

What is visible is probably dependent on what zoom level you're at and what the scale of the charts you're over are at.
