OpenCPN - Open Source PC chartplotter software


OpenCPN is a really neat project, and worthy of a post on any cruising blog... This is an Open Source and completely free PC chartplotter software solution supporting lots of features, with new features being added constantly.

Currently, OpenCPN supports BSB3, S57, and CM93-2 chart formats. It integrates with any NMEA0183 GPS source, and supports AIS. Take a look!

This project is well worth supporting - go download it today: http://opencpn.org

Another related, and useful utility is navmonpc, available free from http://www.navmonpc.com/. The combination of both these utilities makes for a really great navigation solution, with NavMon consuming all NMEA0183 sources and creating a virtual serial port for OpenCPN.
