The ADMIRALTY Vector Chart Service (AVCS) brings together official electronic navigational charts (ENCs) from the UKHO and from other hydrographic offices worldwide to ensure a seamless voyage.


The Admiralty Vector Chart Service (AVCS) brings together ENCs from hydrographic offices around the world and new ENC coverage produced by UKHO in co-operation with Foreign Governments to provide comprehensive, official, worldwide coverage. AVCS contains only ENC data that meets SOLAS Carriage Requirements for use within ECDIS.

At TODD NAVIGATION, we are experts in AVCS and were responsible for implementing the first trials and licenses of the product. We offer full pre- and post sale AVCS support and can assist you in integrating AVCS with your ECDIS system.

AVCS now includes an unbeatable selection of ENCs for near world-wide coverage. Temporary and Preliminary Notice to Mariners are included in the service.

Maximum coverage, full compliance

AVCS brings 'Admiralty ENCs direct to your ECDIS and represents an ideal solution for Fleets looking to make the transition from paper to electronic navigation ahead of the IMO Mandate beginning in 2012.
