Marine Electronic Charts and PC Systems will be the subject of the RIN SCG Joint Winter Meeting with the Little Ship Club. This evening talk at the Little Ship Club in London will be given by Lance Godefroy of Navionics and Gavin Ashworth of Yachting Software.

The talks will focus on marine electronic charts and the latest developments, in particular how crowd-sourcing is revolutionizing digital marine charts and the use of NavigationPLANNER and PC Plotter software for tidal, route and weather planning and the processing of and overlay of navigation data, including AIS onto Navionics charts. The talks will also cover new features, such as the synchronisation of Theyr weather forecasts with tidal data to enable wind over tide to be quickly identified and Winning Fishing which runs alongside WinningFishing Apps for iOS and Android devices.
