Fugawi Announces Fugawi Aboard Quilted Raster Charts for U.S. and Canadian Waters
New Charts Deliver All the Benefits of Digital Format with Paper Chart Quality – Minus The Paper
TORONTO, Canada — Fugawi Aboard, a groundbreaking new product from Northport Systems Inc. has just been launched. Designed with new technology, Fugawi Aboard combines U.S. and Canadian raster charts, based on National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) nautical charts, into quilted regions for use on compatible chart plotters. Fugawi Aboard combines over 2,000 NOAA and 600 CHS raster navigation charts all on one convenient quilted product.
Packed with coastline detail for the entire United States and Canada, Fugawi Aboard delivers the look and feel of vector charts with the unmatched detail and familiarity of paper charts. The charts behave like any other electronic cartography, allowing users to zoom and pan, and include meta data for additional information such as the chart name, number and depth soundings.
“We are very excited to announce the release of Fugawi Aboard,” said Robin Martel, president of Northport Systems. “Paper charts of U.S. and Canada have always been popular yet they were nowhere to be seen on chart plotters. Fugawi Aboard opens the door for new possibilities in digital cartography, bringing electronic paper charts to chart plotters everywhere.”
