C-Map Releases N.C. Precision Contour HD Chart

Anglers Will Find Fishing Areas Faster with 1-Foot Contours and Custom Color Depth Shading

Tulsa, Okla. – C-MAP®, a leader in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, has announced the release of a new chart card in its series of digital fishing map cards, Precision Contour HD – North Carolina. Precision HD cards feature highly detailed 1-foot contours, high-resolution satellite imagery and C-MAP’s one-of-a-kind Custom Color Depth Shading, as well as fishing and navigational Points of Interest. The card is exclusive to chartplotters in the Navico portfolio of brands (Lowrance®, Simrad® and B&G®).
“We are excited for our customers to get their hands on the new Precision Contour HD chart card for North Carolina,” said Knut Frostad, CEO, Navico. “The unrivaled detail of our Precision Contour charts makes it easier for anglers to find productive water, so they can spend more time fishing and less time searching for key fishing areas.”

The C-MAP survey fleet includes shallow-draft boats with surface-drive motors, enabling comprehensive coverage of every popular and important fishery in each state covered. Surveyed coverage includes most of the skinniest distant creek arms and shallowest backwaters, as well as key, fish-holding offshore structure like humps and holes, reefs and shoals, ledges and breaklines, sunken islands and points.

Precision Contour HD charts also feature C-MAP’s Custom Color Depth Shading* functionality, which enables anglers to highlight specific areas of interest, including current fish-holding depths and potential hazard areas. Custom Color Depth Shading also enables adjustments to the chart display to reflect high- or low-water conditions that can affect the shape and edges of shorelines and submerged or partially submerged structures. Additional map-display features include four pre-set, depth-shading palettes, including Safety Shading.

The North Carolina chart covers the following C-MAP-surveyed waterbodies, as well as traditional data on other lakes in North Carolina.
