Like its sibling product, Digital Aviator,
the Digital Mariner is a FREE moving map and route planning software
application. It offers a detailed vector-based world map and a GPS
interface to allow for simple route planning and worldwide enroute progress tracking.
Unlike most marine moving map applications on the market today,
Digital Mariner provides everything you need for global navigation
in a single package. A detailed vector base map with worldwide
inland waterways and a NMEA 0183 GPS interface are included in this
FREE application. You can optionally purchase additional
data products to enhance your overall situational awareness, but
you are not obligated to do so in order to download and use the
Our marine navigation database is comprised
of advanced datasets currently being produced and maintained by the
United States Military and other participating military organizations
around the world. Our marine data products are derived from these
datasets and specially formatted for use with Digital Mariner.
These advanced datasets offer mariners the ultimate in situational
awareness: the look-and-feel of raster charts, with infinite zoom
and seamless worldwide coverage found only in vector products.
The end result is truly a technological advancement over the marine
data products currently available today.
For clients with an investment in older raster-based marine charts,
the Digital Mariner offers an import facility that can be used with
Maptech and SoftChart products. The Digital Mariner's layering
technology allows advanced vector datasets to be overlaid on legacy
raster charts and imagery for the ultimate in two-dimensional marine
Due to certain restrictions of the military datasets used by
Digital Mariner, we are unable to release the product to the general
public at this time. Our military sponsors have informed us that
public availability of this data will be announced by year-end 2000.
However, because of our active military sponsorship, we have immediate
access to the data and are working now to package it for sale to our
future clients. We are also in the process of remove some of the
protected data elements, so that we can deliver the
Digital Mariner with its detailed global base map in the interim.
