    Hlep on Digital Charts
    From: Olivier Le Diouris
    Date: 2004 Apr 30, 16:47 -0700

    Hello List,
    I have written some (open source, free) logging software, in Java, that
    works pretty well for me (see links below).
    I'd like to make them a bit richer, by using a chart in the background,
    that sometimes helps!
    
    Does anyone know if there is any "official" or recommended standard for
    this kind of data? If yes, is it documented somewhere?
    What I mean is that, if I have access to nautical charts in this format,
    will I find somewhere enough information to render those charts using my
    own program, even if I have to write it?
    
    I found some interesting info at http://pollux.nss.nima.mil/pubs/, but I
    have not been able to find explanation about this format...
    Any idea, hint, clue, link, etc, most welcome!
    
    Thank you all,
    - Olivier
