Raster charts / RNCs

Euronav are digital distributors for the Admiralty Raster Chart Service (ARCS).

Quick links

seaPro (depending on version) has support for Raster charts including BSB, ARCS using Navigator service (seaPro plus and above) and GeoTiff.

What are Raster charts?

Raster charts are scanned in paper charts which are then georeferenced. Raster charts look identical to paper charts and may sometimes have better coverage than S57 Vector in remote areas,although this difference is rapidly being eroded.

If possible use the vector charts over raster - this is a requirement for ECDIS usage without paper backup.

What are ARCS Navigator licences?

ARCS Navigator is a commercial licence and lasts for 12 months. The licence includes a weekly update service.. Permits are emailed directly to the user and updates can be downloaded from the UKHO web site or sent out on CD (additional cost)
