Qt Virtual Chart Table (QVCT) ============================= Synopsis and Features --------------------- The Qt Virtual Chart Table (QVCT) is a Qt application which provides a navigation software that simulates the chart table (and instruments corner) usually found in ships. It is thus suitable for sailing, flying or any other outdoor activity performed using a conventional navigation/planning approach: - using heading, speed and time as primary navigation means - using easily identifiable landmarks as references - navigating along discrete waypoints routes - relying on GPS only as a secondary navigation mean - using offline maps (rather than Internet-dependent online resources) It features: - loading offline geo-referenced maps, stored in any format/projection supported by the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) - associating a digital elevation model (DEM) to any map, stored in any format/projection supported by the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) - creating, loading, saving and managing landmarks, routes and tracks, stored in GPX or QVCT (XML) format - creating, loading, saving and managing (multiple) vessels, stored in QVCT (XML) format and linkable, individually or globally (dynamic flotilla), to (multiple) navigation devices (see below) - defining and using multiple navigation devices, including: * GPS daemon (GPSD) - GPS mode * GPS daemon (GPSD) - AIS mode * SBS-1 (ADS-B) base station - loading and saving entire navigation/planning projects, stored in QVCT (XML) format - displaying vessel instruments in an activity-specific cockpit, including: * general aviation "basic six" - printing maps and overlays (landmarks, routes, etc.) in standard (screen) or high (1200 DPI) resolution - touchscreen-friendly user interface (you really don't need a mouse or key- board while navigating) (Please check the attached ROADMAP for planned or under-development features) It runs and is being developed on Linux (Ubuntu), though it can potentially also be built on Mac OS X and Windows.
