C-MAP’s new High Resolution Bathymetry fishing charts actually put contour-line data in a 3-D view compatible with Furuno NavNet 3D, TZtouch, and TZtouch2 multifunction displays, as well as Nobeltec TimeZero Sportfishing software for PCs.

While traditional bathymetric charts, like topographical maps, with their tight and widely spaced contour lines almost trick the eye into seeing a third dimension on a flat surface.These charts allow viewing in a 3-D format that takes the guesswork out of the equation.

Through other C-MAP chart products the High Resolution Bathymetry works with Raymarine, Simrad, and Humminbird systems, and others.

Benefit Analysis: Bottom-contour detail will allow knowledgeable fishermen to study the seafloor to find the upwellings, rips, and honey holes that concentrate bait for their target species.
