See more: C# library format source
I am in the process of building my own nautical navigation program. I am writing it in Windows C# using VS2010 and MS 2010 Access DB.
I am stuck without a module to display the nautical charts. Nautical charts are formatted to the NOAA S57 or S60 formats of the original .BSB format.
Does anyone know of a DLL or plug in or source code that I can use to display these chart formats. These particular formats are exclusive to the nautical world as such it is difficult to locate code (dll etc) that I can use. And I am yest to find any examples on how to build your own viewer.
There is a C++ library "libbsb" for win32 that I am trying to find documetation to, but no luck so far.
Some of the tools I have looked at include...
* OpenCPN
* MapWindow
* NavPak-Pro
* OkMap
* Fugawi View ENC
* SoftChart Viewer
* PolarView

I have looked in the GIS format and it does not have anything related to these particular formats available.
Anyhelp would be great.

Hm. I just took a look at this. I suspect the documentation is indeed less then brilliant (if any)...
