Weather4D 2.0 is a powerful application for charting navigation and weather routing. It displays navigation tracks, routes and weather forecasts in single or dual screen. 

Weather4D 2.0 helps prepare and track navigation on a wide range of official marine charts issued from many countries hydrographic services.

Weather4D 2.0 is based on global weather forecasts in GRIB format. Many meteorological and oceanographic forecasting models are available, downloads and requests are fully customizable. Weather4D 2.0 displays the combined data overlayed with multiple layers, and allows to finely set display mode and quality of each data. The data set in a selected model is displayed as an animation in continuous time scrolling or manual time scrolling on the map or chart.

The Weather4D 2.0 routing module helps to optimize routes for sailing or motor boating, or sail and motor mixed. From a theoretical route, motor routing will take account of wind strength constraints and wave heights for optimal comfort and safety. For sailing routing, a speed polar combined with wind and currents forecasts will be used for optimizing performance, comfort and safety. The multi-Routing allows to compare the results of different options: forecasting models, start date and time, selected constraint values.
