KAP-charts from OpenSeaMap
KAP-chart bundles are primarily inteded to be used with OpenCPN. They are currently only tested with OpenCPN.
Each chart bundle contains several hundred charts in different scales from overview to harbour charts.
To provide an easy way of use, we prepare these chart bundles and provide a single download link for each bundle. The bundles are packed as .7z and can be unpacked with several tools, but naturally best with SevenZIP. (Link to : http://7-zip.org/download.html)

- Unzip: The bundles are packed as .7z and can be unpacked with several tools, but naturally best with SevenZIP. (Link to : http://7-zip.org/download.html). Please use version 15.XX. We had reports of problems with v9.20.
- In OpenCPN register the charts as usual. Our experience is that is is easiest to have a directory containing all your chart bundles, BUT register each bundles directory separately. Then you can rebuild the database partly, change a single bundle etc.
