Hi JW,

We have quite a few technophiles over here in the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland. We also have some german members who holiday regularlt on the Shannon.

The lads got some base cartography from Ord Survey over here. They mixed this with some software for Garmin , logged all of the marker buoys etc on the lakes and hey presto a Shannon Electronic chart chip that works in Garmin plotters. This is all being done on a non commercial / fun basis.

Have a look at a site that one of the lads set up www.shannoncharts.com .

I'm not directlt involved myself but I'm sure that Dave McCabe who set it up would be more than happy to chat with you. Feel free to mention my name when emailing him.

Best wishes,

Stuart

get some good mapping software and make your own maps by scanning a ordiinance survey map. I use fugawi from Canada( www.fugawi.com) and the disks come with your choice of maps ( i, all US or all europe). Just ensure that when you have scanned tye map that you calibrate it exactly otherwise you end up in the pub when you should be in midwater. You can then use the map with any GPS interface onto either a pocket pc or laptop.
Pice ex toronto was a year ago about 130 CDN $. When you scan the map be sure to scan a part with Long/Lat grid lines then you can enter exactly a reference point where two lines cross. It's a bit fiddly, but you sure learn a hell of a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!

mapoint have already done all the hard work with the OS maps - unfortunately the 1.25000 are a bit slow coming out but full 1.50000 coverage - they are great - use them on my IPAQ with gps all the time - you can switch to an aerial photo view to see exactly where you are!

It really confuses some people when I show them - they can't quite work out if it is a real satellite image they are seeing or not - one poor guy thought that if he got ourt of the car the satellite would see him waving and I would see it on the IPAQ!!!! I wish!

And before people say they ARE that good just remember the atmosphere gets in the way too much - you won't get much better satellite images than these!
