Marine data distribution

We’re experts at overcoming problems with shipboard internet, and in compressing marine data - particularly charts - for transmission over limited or expensive bandwidth.

CherSoft's Universal Chart Server technology is at the backbone of many of our products. It provides mariners with official up-to-date ENCs from NOAA®, PRIMAR® and AVCS® alongside other critical navigational information such as weather and sea ice limits.

For the hydrographic office

We have many years of experience in data delivery, both electronically and on paper. Our systems can take a dataset and produce print-ready copy of books, CDs for physical distribution, and data for electronic distribution. 

We’re heavily involved at the data production workflow end of hydrographic office systems, as well as driving innovation in way data is consumed and used on board the vessel. 

For the chart agent

Our data distribution technologies can be integrated with existing CRM and payment systems; we can supply data delivery components to run within your existing system on your own hardware, or provide a hosted and managed service to deliver your data to your customers from our systems.

We use our expertise in data compression to minimise the bandwidth used in data delivery

We feel that a simple question “Does this vessel have up to date chart data and permits for its current operational area?” should be easy for a mariner or chart agent to answer without worrying about cells, products, units, permits, editions and update numbers.

Our consumer navigation software Nuno Navigator ™ will allow leisure mariners to request charts for a route, see the suggested chart coverage, and easily click through to make any necessary purchase and have the charts download and install.

We’re very interested in working in partnership with chart agents to develop innovative products and business models in the data delivery space.

For everyone

CherSoft's Universal Chart Server allows users of our applications to quickly and easily access the full complement of official ENC charts, whether they are on ship or shore. Our patented ENC compression technology reduces bandwidth usage by up to 60% for users on satellite broadband connections - promoting safe navigation by encouraging regular updating of charts while underway.
