As well as supporting the drag/drop (see Section 10.2, “Loading data”) of chart data
directly into a Debrief plot, Debrief supports the concept of a Chart Folio
The chart folio is contained in a single folder, with the folder named according to the geographic area covered (since this is the name offered to the user)
The folder must contain a shapefile named
. This shapefile must contain a series of rectangle geometries - one for each
chart in the folio. Each rectangle must have a property named
The folder must also contain a series of Tif images with supporting .prj sidecar files. (Note: the folios received from UKHO in Autumn 2011 do not contain sidecar fiels. Debrief generates the missing sidecar files as necessary. This is acceptable for UKHO charts, which follow a particular standard - one cannot assume it non UKHO charts follow the same standard).
