C&C Marine has chosen C-MAP, one of the very first
digital cartography brand on the market


C-MAP: Accurate worldwide charts and expertise

Company Information

C-MAP, founded in Italy in 1985, has a proven track record in mapping and services for all types of commercial clients. The ability to integrate and share information across products provides decision support, and standardised data interfaces enable multi-dimensional analysis of performance and efficiency.

C-MAP is one of the first commercial brands to enter the digital cartography market and is compatible with most digital cartography systems.

The vectorisation of paper maps (that later became ENCs) is down to the intuition of an Italian engineer, Fosco Bianchetti – founder of C-MAP. C&C Marine immediately understood its potential and began to distribute the brand on the Italian market.

C-MAP is one of the very first digital cartography brands on the market and is the only brand in the world that includes among its solutions for ECDIS both official ENC cartography and unofficial cartography, the latter named “Professional+”. All the solutions offered by C-MAP (official and unofficial), always include weekly updates that are delivered through its own update software.

C-MAP is the ideal solution to ensure that all management is efficient by reducing training costs, procurement times and IT costs, including ship and office integrations. C-MAP’s MPS group offers a customised approach through its well-coordinated team of experienced marine architects, marine engineers, ship captains and project managers.
