Netherlands Raster Chart Update

Raster Charts for the Netherlands have been updated within three chart zones.

These Mapmedia chart zones integrate the new routing system in the southern part of the North Sea. This new organisation was put into place on the first of August, 2013 in accordance with the IMO Sub-committee on the Safety of Navigation proposal NAV/58/3/2.

Mapmedia has applied these changes very quickly to our charts to ensure that customers have the most up-to-date information possible for maximum safety.

Here are the updated chart zones:

Old vs new Netherlands Raster Charts

Here is an example of this update:

Differences between old and new Netherlands Raster Chart

As this is a minor chart update, customers will not need to pay if they already own the major chart edition.
Customers who already own the charts WRMEW25MAP5.1, WRMEW28MAP4.1 or MWRMEW46MAP5.1 will therefore access this update for free.

See more images of the updated chart in our Facebook album and G+ page.

      Dear Robert,
      Jeppesen charts will be updated next year in April/May.
      Thank you for your comment.

        that is a shame as we are crossing in about a week – would have loved to have the new TSS on our charts rather than checking and transferring from the paper corrections – why is it taking that much longer for updates to Jeppersen out of curiosity? Is it normal for updates to take longer with them than raster charts?

        Hi Robert,
        We know that it can be frustrating but we only update our Jeppesen charts twice a year, that’s a lot of work if you add all the Navionics and Raster chart areas!
        Sorry for the inconvenience…
