View any chart in seconds with the new EarthNC Online Chart Viewer!
Combining the power of Google Maps, EarthNC data, and NOAA Raster and Vector charts, the EarthNC chart viewer provides ready access to important boating information. You can view charts in a ‘seamless’ mode or select a specific NOAA chart number for a given area.
When using a supported browser (Firefox 3.5, Safari, Chrome), the EarthNC Chart Viewer will request permission to estimate your location to initialize the map view. Changing locations is a simple matter of panning the map or using the built-in map search tool to jump to a different city or zipcode. Map search can also be used to find nearby businesses, restaurants, hotels, or other features.
Bookmark and share your favorite spots by creating custom ‘Map Links’ or choose the ‘Embed Map’ option to get code to paste the Chart Viewer into your own website or blog.
More than just charts, the EarthNC Chart Viewer includes ‘Nearby’ and ‘Routing’ tools. The Nearby menu will show NOAA Weather Buoy, FAA Airport Weather, Marine Forecasts, and 3 day Tide Predictions near any map location. The Routing tool lets you draw a custom route on top of the map and save it to GPX, Google Earth KML, or PDF format for later use.
We’ll be releasing new features for the chart viewer in the future including a dedicated Mobile version for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Palm, and other operating systems.
