The addition of more than 50 high resolution aerial photographs of locks, bridges, marinas and harbor inlets will significantly enhance the navigational experience throughout the Trent-Severn Waterway, providing a powerful visual reference to enhance situational awareness. This 386-kilometer canal system was originally created for commercial shipping, but is now one of Canada's most popular recreational boating highways. Registered as a Canadian National Historic Site, the Trent-Severn Waterway connects Lake Ontario at Trenton to the Georgian Bay portion of Lake Huron at Port Severn. It includes a series of natural waterways such as the Trent River, Otonabee River, Kawartha Lakes, Lake Simcoe, Lake Couchiching and the Severn River, connected by 32 kilometers of man-made channels, 44 locks, 39 swing bridges and 160 dams and control structures. Accurate, up-to-date electronic charts and the situational awareness of detailed aerial imagery are critical in navigating these popular and challenging waters.
With the addition of PORTS industry-leading aerial photography, boaters will be better able to anticipate navigational challenges. The C-MAP MAX electronic charts become a natural companion to the full printed PORTS guides, the industry-leading boating guides which offer detailed information on marinas, restaurants, local attractions and navigational considerations.
Club Jeppesen members can receive these enhancements as part of their automatic annual chart update. They are also available to boaters purchasing affordable chart updates or new C-MAP MAX electronic charts.
The photos represent a sample of more than 200 purpose-shot images that appear in the current PORTS Cruising Guide to the Trent-Severn Waterway, one of four books in the popular Canadian series. Other titles cover Lake Ontario and the Thousand Islands; Lake Huron, Georgian Bay and the North Channel; and the Rideau Canal and Lower Ottawa River.
