ESRI nautical charts in the safetrx app “knrm helps”

Today SafeTrx announced support for ESRI nautical charts in our Dutch SafeTrx app “KNRM Helps”. The SafeTrx development team together with the KNRM and ESRI have developed an integration that delivers high quality ENC charts to the SafeTrx application.
