Islamorada is an authorized distributor for ADMIRALTY digital products. We maintain an extensive set of digital and web-based products and services to compliment the Admiralty paper charts and publications series.
The ADMIRALTY Vector Chart Service (AVCS) is the most comprehensive, official, digital maritime chart service in the world; with over 13,800 Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) from hydrographic offices around the world, packaged and quality assured by the UKHO into a single value-added service.
AVCS provides the widest official coverage, allowing ships to navigate on ECDIS for the entirety of most major routes on a single chart service. This coverage includes 4,000 of the biggest and busiest ports worldwide, of which we offer unique coverage for over 150.
All ENCs in AVCS satisfy the mandatory chart carriage requirements of SOLAS Chapter V, with certificates provided for local inspection.
All AVCS customers will also receive weekly ENC updates by internet download, email or disc. Installing the latest updates on a regular basis supports safe navigation and compliance with flag and port state requirements.
AVCS is delivered in industry standard S-63 / S57 formats, guaranteeing compatibility with all ECDIS sold today – even in a mixed fleet.
AVCS S-63 Edition 1.1 also meets the latest mandated data protection standard from the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), designed to reduce the risk of both data piracy and the distribution of unofficial, dangerous ENCs to the mariner.
To help bridge crews identify areas of possible navigational uncertainty and risk at the crucial passage planning stage, all AVCS customers receive the unique ADMIRALTY Information Overlay (AIO) at no extra cost. Combining all UKHO Temporary and Preliminary Notices to Mariners (T&P NMs) for all ADMIRALTY Standard Nautical Charts, and ENC Preliminary Notice to Mariners (EP NMs), AIO is displayed as a single layer on top of an ENC.
ARCS is the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office’s paper chart portfolio presented in a digital format. Over 3000 charts provide extensive, official coverage of international commercial shipping routes, main ports and harbours at a comprehensive range of scales. ARCS charts are licensed on a chart by chart basis to give you maximum flexibility – you only have to pay for the charts you need.
All ARCS charts have the same familiar image and use the same internationally recognised symbology as ADMIRALTY paper charts - making them the easy first step from chart table to electronic navigation.
