What's happening at Chersoft:

  • Release of ENCX 4.2

    We are pleased to announce the release of ENCX version 4.2.

    This release focuses on better support for the themes found in AML V3 cells. ENCX now treats AML V3 themes as separate S-57 products, making it easier to turn the drawing of cells with the same theme on or off and to change the z-order they are drawn in.

    You can find the full details of the updated features and bug fixes on the ENCX website.

    ENCX is a comprehensive SDK for adding marine charting functionality quickly and easily to third-party software. It allows designers to build a wide range of software and supports vector, raster and all major chart formats.

    It can be added to almost any system at any stage in the design cycle with as little as 19 lines of code.

    Try ENCX for yourself and download the latest free demonstration software from the ENCX website.
