The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2011-04-19T04:24:56Z JEPPESEN INTRODUCES NEW HIGH-RESOLUTION BATHYMETRIC CHARTS FOR AUSTRALIAN WATERS 2011-04-19T04:24:56Z jeppesen-introduces-new-high-resolution-bathymetric-charts-for-australian-waters SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - 19 April, 2011 - Jeppesen announced today the release of its new high-resolution Jeppesen bathymetric charts for Australian waters, growing its popular global portfolio of speciality C-MAP by Jeppesen charts. Jeppesen bathymetric charts, covering Australian coastal waters, provide an unprecedented level of details, realistically depicting the Australian seafloor. The depth contours provided by these high definition bathy charts make them an ideal aid for both sailing and fishing. The sailing fraternity will be able to use these charts to predict eddies in currents to improve performance while fishermen will be able to use them to find prominent seafloor structure to predict upwellings where the elusive bait fish hides. Fishermen, mariners and sailors alike will find Jeppesen bathymetric charts a practical companion to standard navigational charts. “The addition of high-resolution Jeppesen bathymetric charts for Australian waters continues Jeppesen’s innovative spirit as we expand our award winning portfolio of electronic chart coverage in Australia and around world,” said Wayne Hunter, Jeppesen senior market manager for Australia. “With Jeppesen’s high-resolution bathy data, commercial fishermen and sports fishing enthusiasts can better locate important deep water fishing areas where fish are likely to congregate and feed. This can increase time on the fishing ground while burning less fuel locating the grounds.” Purchased as a separate cartridge to supplement navigational charts, C-MAP by Jeppesen bathymetric charts are designed for use in conjunction with MAX and NT+ compatible chart plotters and PC based navigation programs. Rich high resolution details – from depths 20 metres and below – make them ideal for fishermen, divers, mariners and sailors alike; however, Jeppesen bathymetric charts are not intended for navigational use.
