Vector Electronic Marine Charts

MapMedia mm3d Vector Charts utilize a vector database to build the chart display. This data is stored in layers and features every nautical chart feature such as coastlines, buoys, lights, etc. These features and their attributes such as position, color, size, shape, and others are stored in a database that allows them to be selectively displayed.

Vector Charts


Vector charts are extremely accurate at their reference scales (as long as they are not “over-zoomed”), but can appear quite different from traditional Raster paper charts. MapMedia mm3d Vector Charts allow you to customize your chart display, by choosing the type and density of information that you want to appear.

Main advantages

  • Good display at any scale.
  • Detailed information on specific chart objects (e.g. buoys).
  • Ability to configure charts and filter displayed data.

Main drawbacks

  • Vector charts have a very different “look” from Raster paper charts.
  • Vector charts become very inaccurate when over-zoomed.
