C-MAP Releases South Carolina Precision Contour HD Chart Card

1-Foot Contours and Custom Depth Shading Helps Anglers Find Fishing Areas with Ease

Egersund, Norway – C-MAP®, a leader in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, announced today the release of the latest in its series of digital fishing map cards, Precision Contour HD – South Carolina. After an extensive survey campaign by C-MAP, the new card features highly detailed 1-foot contours, high-resolution satellite imagery and C-MAP’s one-of-a-kind Custom Color Depth Shading*, as well as fishing and navigational Points of Interest. The card is exclusive to chartplotters in the Navico portfolio of brands (Lowrance®, Simrad Yachting and B&G®). 

The C-MAP survey fleet includes shallow-draft boats with surface-drive motors, enabling comprehensive coverage of every popular and important fishery in each state covered. Surveyed coverage includes most of the narrowest distant creek arms and shallowest backwaters, as well as key, fish-holding offshore structure like humps and holes, reefs and shoals, ledges and breaklines, sunken islands and points.

Precision Contour HD charts also feature C-MAP’s Custom Color Depth Shading functionality, which enables anglers to highlight specific Points of Interest, including current fish-holding depths and potential hazard areas. Custom Color Depth Shading also enables adjustments to the chart display to reflect high- or low-water conditions that can affect the shapes and edges of shorelines and submerged or partially submerged structures. Additional map display features include four pre-set, depth-shading palettes, such as Safety Shading.
