After years of research, development and testing, OLEX AS has developed and keeps refining the most comprehensive seafloor topography mapping system available on the market.

Speed, flexibility and user-friendliness are important keywords to explain their success.

OLEX can use official and unofficial vector charts, in S57, shape and SOSI format, from Hydrographic Offices and commercial vendors. The navigation charts are displayed alongside the collected seabed data and the chart visualization software will, always strive to achieve a clear and informative chart image and prevent the screen from filling up with unnecessary information, by displaying only information relevant to the current zoom scale. Zooming and chart display are fast, easy and seamless.
