Furuno and ChartWorld optimise voyage planning with new partnership

Furuno and ChartWorld have entered a cooperation agreement to promote ChartWorld’s information-overlay service to Furuno ECDIS operators and owners.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}ChartWorld Information Overlay, known as CIO+, is a data overlay shown in ECDIS as a user chart, loaded on top of the Electronic Nautical Chart. CIO+ is a tool to help the team on the bridge with voyage planning and execution, automating the process of applying additional data in ECDIS by means of user-chart objects.

Furuno will support ChartWorld’s promotion of CIO+ on its ECDIS, automatically adding the following data:

CIO+ includes Temporary and Preliminary Notices to Mariners (T&P NtM) published by the UKHO and other local Hydrographic Offices.

CIO+ includes NAVAREA Navigational Warnings. All active NAVAREA warnings along a planned route will be supplied and updated weekly in a CIO+ user-chart overlay.

Oliver Schwarz, ChartWorld’s business development director, commented: “CIO+ is a great step forward to better and safer voyage planning. It makes a huge difference to crew efficiency and accuracy and can provide onshore teams with increased navigational oversight. Furuno’s support of the CIO+ service shows the strength of the software. It makes the information on their ECDIS better and gives the user a competitive edge.”{/mprestriction}
