Voyage Planning

Partnering with ChartWorld makes planning your voyage a simple and transparent process. Click on the below services to discover how we can help you get where you need to go safely and effectively.

ChartWorld Information Overlay Plus (CIO+)

CIO+ is the first and only solution in the market which resolves a long-standing problem regarding the plotting of T&P corrections in the ECDIS.

CIO+ removes the complexity and time spent to perform the essential onboard task of checking and plotting T&P corrections in the ECDIS. The service performs the task many people think AIO does as it provides the mariner with a fully corrected ECDIS chart including essential safety information such as T&Ps, and NavArea warnings amongst others.

Without plotting (applying) this information onto the chart, a ship increases its navigational risk and also heightens its chance of falling foul of the authorities.

Although the regular AIO does highlight any T&Ps which may be missing from the chart, it does not actually apply the correction on the chart, meaning ECDIS has no way of understanding the information.

CIO+ not only improves safety it also takes away a lot of the headaches and difficulty of managing and applying this information onto the ECDIS. This, traditionally, has caused a lot of confusion for seafarers and the implications of this are not fully appreciated in the industry.

eNotices to Mariners

ChartWorld eNtM is an essential tool for getting digital NtM onboard your vessel. It is the most cost-effective solution on the market because of the low monthly fees and low data transfer volumes needed to successfully update your paper charts.

With ChartWorld eNtM you can easily keep track of the corrections applied to your paper charts. The software tracks all outstanding corrections, and once applied, amendments can be made quickly and simply through ChartBrowser.

ChartWorld eNtm will help your crew keep track of paper chart corrections, and supplies tracings and graphical updates that are required for your paper charts, providing a full overview of all charts that need updating.

A part of our service,  three years correction history for paper charts will be supplied. If you want to switch from paper NtM to digital NtM updates for your paper charts, all corrections have to be stored onboard; the backup history provides an audit trail which enables you to have confidence when switching to digital NtM.


Another ChartWorld advantage is that we provide this information as part of our dedicated software platform on board the vessel, ChartBrowser.

However, our real point of difference is that fact we can plot this information directly into the ECDIS (where it is most needed) as part of our CIO+ service. ChartWorld is the only company to be able to provide this feature, reducing manual efforts on board and, most importantly, increasing safe navigation.
