Services: Fishing Charts




KisProc is a unique way to freely release chart data directly to mariners.



Fishing Vessel "Maggie M" departs Whitby Harbour in North Yorkshire, UK, with Kingfisher Charts onboard - produced using our KisProc system. Specifically designed to get important safety information to mariners and display it on-board, our KisProc system produces electronic chart overlays which are compatible with many popular marine plotters.

If you want to distribute chart data to mariners, our 'KisProc Chart Layer Production System' could be the answer you are looking for.

Even though Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs) are becoming commonplace, incorporating your data within someone else's ENC is fraught with difficulty because ENCs are locked by their manufacturers user licence codes.

But using our KisProc system, you can go a different way, putting your data onto the plotter's user layer.. And you can release your updates at any time directly to your target vessels without being locked in to an ENC or plotter manufacturer.

Marine plotters currently supported include MaxSea, Sodena, Transas, Chartworx Quod, TheMap, Trax, Northrop Grumman - Sperry Marine Decca Fishmaster, Penta, Sea Information Systems SIS Microplot 7 and FishSAFE, C-Map and Olex with support for more plotters being added all the time.

KisProc was originally devised for the Sea Fish Industry Authority and is regularly used by their Kingfisher Charts Division to provide fishermen with six monthly updates of their Offshore Renewable Cable Awareness Charts and their FishSAFE: Oil & Gas Fishing Plotter Files.

The chart overlays are installed on-board more than 350 fishing vessels, providing vital safety information and ensuring skippers do not accidentally damage subsea installations when trawling.
