Periskal Inland ECDIS Viewer
The Periskal Inland ECDIS Viewer is already 30 years the standard software for navigation in inland shipping.

The program is connected with a GPS system and shows continuously the position of the vessel on the screen. The software is built conform the regulations of Inland ECDIS, a standard approved by the CCNR and Danube Commission. It follows all rules set out by the EU RIS Directive. All charts are in the S-57 format.

Oncoming traffic or ships running behind, that come within a certain set distance are displayed differently, they get red blocks around the AIS symbol. You set the distance within which this function will work and you choose a minimum permitted distance. Every ship that will come within this set distance lights up in the chart. The potential collision is detected on the basis of...
