Chart image

Stentecs inland water charts are so-called hybrid charts. The bottom surface is a raster format. This is where a.o. the quays, depths and buildings are shown. All other navigational information is projected on top of this through waypoints. These waypoints remain the same size when zooming in or out. The chart can be fully personalized by adding or removing certain waypoint groups and showing you only the information you select.

In total, the DKW Belgium has 7.816 waypoints, with a.o. buoys, harbours, moorings, diesel tank stations, watersport campsites, shore power connections and VHF channels.

Specifically for commercial shipping waterway signs and VIN moorings are added.
