ChartAid - OpenCPN Users


ChartAid Raster charts have been tested with OpenCPN 4.0.  OpenCPN currently does not support Photo or GeoTIFF charts. 

Installing Charts:

After you have generated your ChartAid Raster charts, you must install the new charts using OpenCPN before they can be displayed.  To install your new charts:

2) Click the 'Charts' toolbar button at the top of the OpenCPN Options window (shown to the left).

3) Click the 'Chart Files' tap button.

4) If 'C:\ChartKit' directory is not listed then add 'C:\ChartKit\ChartAid' directory.  See Chart Storage/Installation for addition information on where charts are stored.

6) Click 'OK' button.

Displaying Charts:


After the ChartAid charts have been installed you can view the charts just like any other charts.
