Digital charts

Postby Michael of Cambria » Sat Oct 04, 2008 6:41 pm

I have just spent a frustrating day trying to find out about digital charts for the west coast of South America - in particular, from Panama to Peru for the moment, Chile in the future. Does anyone know of a source for these? It seems like the Old Wild West out there with regard to these things.
Plan B: back to the paper charts. Now where did I put those dividers?

Have you considered the SSCA forum? I'm sure someone there has a useful answer.

As near as I can figure, the British Admiralty has ENC charts available. See <http://www.ukho.gov.uk/amd/costs.asp#ENCsp>. Seems as though there's some sort of subscription service required, though.

Otherwise, Bellingham Charts has electronic charts for many different brands of plotters. Pricey, of course. <http://www.tidesend.com/index.lasso?page=echarts_region>

Good luck,

Allan
