Admiralty Information Overlay for e-Navigator and JRC ECDIS02/12/2011
|Customers of the Admiralty Vector Chart Service (AVCS) now have two new ways to view the most accurate and up-to-date navigational charts to help make digital navigation safer, more efficient and fully compliant. The Admiralty Information Overlay, a free service to AVCS customers, is now available on Admiralty e-Navigator and on JRC ECDIS models JAN-701B, JAN-901B, JAN-2000; Transas Navisailor and SevenCs ORCA Master Electronic Chart System.|
The Overlay includes the worldwide Temporary & Preliminary Notices to Mariners (T&PNM) that ships need to sail compliantly with ECDIS and ENCs. The Overlay also includes the results of UKHO's comprehensive review of the world's ENCs, and helps ensure bridge teams are aware of navigationally significant differences with existing paper charts.
Viewed on e-Navigator, the Overlay provides an easy and efficient way for the bridge team to view and assess the impact of T&PNMs and other important additional navigational information when planning a voyage.
When viewed on a JRC ECDIS, the Overlay is automatically displayed as an additional layer over the ENC to enable the bridge team to clearly see how T&PNMs may impact a voyage and respond with appropriate action.
In addition to JRC ECDIS, the Information Overlay is also available through Transas Navisailor and SevenCs ORCA Master Electronic Chart System (ECS). The Information Overlay will be available through e-Navigator V 2.4 from December 2012. Customers who wish to integrate the Overlay with their navigational operations should speak to their Admiralty chart distributor.

Spill Response Baseline Survey
CSIRO from Australia is undertaking a survey tour towards the Australian Bight for a baseline survey looking for oil traces in the water. The surveyors are deploying a CTD and a gravity corer measuring possible traces of oil in the water column. The survey mission also consists of hydrographic mapping techniques, GIS and environmental specialists to make sure the situation before exploration is mapped well in order to know what the environmental consequences of an eventual oil seepage or leak may consist of.
