BlueChart® g2 mapping features smooth layering and seamless integration of map graphics for easy panning, scrolling and zooming. With rich colours and shading for easy interpretation and clear visibility, this marine charting offers comprehensive IALA navaid symbology and marine services. A choice of 3D ‘Mariner’s View’ map perspective, or the familiar 2D direct overhead view makes chart reading and orientation easier.
BlueChart is styled to match the appearance of paper charts when displayed on a Garmin chartplotter or GPS mapping handheld device.
Features include shading between depth contours, spot soundings, navaids, port plans, wrecks, obstructions, intertidal zones, fishing charts, restricted areas and more. BlueChart cartography is object-oriented, which means you can pan to an object on the map and instantly view information about that point. Additionally, Fishing Charts contain detailed bathymetric data to emphasise bottom contours and depth soundings. These charts also remove navigation information from the map to reduce clutter and give clearer definition to the sea floor, ideal for fishing.
