OceanView™ is a powerful chart planning system for use onboard and in the office environment. It is designed for back of bridge or Masters office installation or to be installed at companies such as ship-owners, shipbrokers, ship managers and ship operators. Based on the comprehensive Jeppesen chart databases, this is a powerful decision support tool based on our worldwide coverage of electronic vector charts.
Combine OceanView and the ECDIS or ECS
The combination of OceanView in the office enviroment and a CM-93/3 based ECS or ECDIS onboard provides unique features to mariners and operators. One important factor is the ability to exchange vital information between vessels and the office, for instance import and export of route plans. When subscribing to the IMO’s Search & Rescue service (SAR), the ECS onboard can immediately alert the mariner when the vessel approaches a new SAR area. This function is now mandatory on the passenger vessel.
OceanView in practical use
The daily operation of a vessel creates in itself a lot of challenges. Many of these challenges have to be resolved on the spot and may involve several persons located at different places. OceanView™, with its data exchange features, can easily meet such requirements and allow the users to achieve a clear overview of any situation by a quick glance at the screen. The IMO regulations for emergency readiness require a portfolio of charts that corresponding to the vessels voyage, to be present in the office. With OceanView™ and Jeppesen Professional worldwide subscription, you never lack charts for this purpose. OceanView™ also has a unique screen-printing function.
Remote Automatic Updating
Users can link-up to the update database at Jeppesen Norway in order to transfer updates according to Notices to Mariners. This is an end-user service for subscribers available via internet and can be accessed through Inmarsat, GSM or standard telephone line connections. The highly compressed data contains all necessary information to load updates directly into the main database with no additional user intervention required.
