OLEX releases version 15.5

Norwegian-based OLEX AS, the manufacturer of complete systems for navigation, plotting, and 3D seafloor mapping, is pleased to announce that OLEX 15.5 was released and is available as a free download or through your local OLEX dealer for an upgrade of your system.

The improvements of this latest version allow:

  • More aggressive cleaning of /var/log
  • Wider choice of meters vs nautical miles
  • Cleaner refresh of internet objects
  • Complains if not enough RAM for import of Ruter

Moreover, there were some bug fixes related to:

  • Allows “Report out?” for lines noted as ours by BarentsWatch
  • Simrad ES60 and screen resolution, erasing charts

Plus, some minor corrections such as:

  • BarentsWatch errors
  • Tagliste

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. OLEX systems are based on Linux and are considered to be the most stable systems of their kind available on the commercial 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.
