Key e-Data features include:

  • Software available in a choice of languages for easy use by international crews
  • Admiralty paper chart and publication updates
  • Local paper chart updates for Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China NGO, China MSA, Canada, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, USA and Vietnam
  • AVCS, Primar ENC and Admiralty digital publication updates
  • Simple user interface

Using eData, crews can preview and print all index specific NMs, Tracings and Blocks for a selected week or year for all unapplied corrections at the click of a button. 
To help with Port State Inspections and compliance on the bridge, eData also includes a comprehensive correction log and auditing system – vessel specific correction summaries are produced at the touch of a button.

A simple Chart Planner enables route files to be exported to and loaded from major ECDIS manufacturers and third-party applications. Crews can also view their chart and publication holdings geographically to make it easy to identify missing products and select and order charts and publications for the upcoming passage.

e-Data arranges charts and updates onboard in a simple folio system to help streamline the chart and publication updating process. Different country’s updates are divided using tab bookmarks with all NtMs, Tracings and Blocks conveniently stored by chart number making it easy to find the information you need.

eData uses state of the art compression tools to deliver data in the smallest file size possible helping vessels to save on communications costs.
