PawPrint releases Web Satellite Navigation Tracking Software

a new XDe module for global location tracking

Bringing together our experience with GIS, web development, navigation, and telecommunications PawPrint is pleased to announce TRACK-NAV, a new XDe module that is already tracking the first offshore voyage of the Topsail Schooner Pacific Grace.

The system can receive updated position, observation, and log data via INMAR/C satellite and plot that data on a detailed world map. Average distance over the routs is calculated automatically and all data is stored in a database so the entire log of the voyage can be retained over time.

" This is probably one of the most exciting projects I have been able to work on in recent memory" said PawPrint president Scott Baker, who sailed with SALTS (the society who built and sails the Pacific Grace amongst other vessels) "I believe that we have only begun to explore the potential of this new software, we are already seeking out historical voyages to plot, such as Capt. Vancouverīs"
