    FAQ

    What, if no internet on the quay side or onboard the vessel?

    The marine surveyor records draft and displacement on the smartphone on the quay side and onboard the vessel in realtime. The recordings are kept on the smartphone, sync'ed to the cloud app server whenever 3G or wifi is again available, f.ex. when back in the office using office-WiFi, maintaining the real-time captured timestamps and GPS location.

    Why will the cargo owner (charterer) love this?

    The recordings are done in real time, auto-sync'ed to the cloud, with auto-capturing of timestamp and GPS for each recording; possibly documented with photos of draft readings. The smartphone recordings cannot later be tampered with in the office -all smartphone recordings are kept as documentation for all draft surveys in the port.

    How do I get the smartphone app?

    Download from Google Play.

    Do I need other equipment than the Marine Draft Survey app on my smartphone?

    If only taking drafts from quayside you need an inclinometer to determine the list across the beam. You might need equipment to determine the water density. And, you need the vessel's hydrostatic particulars for trim LCB, and trim & stability book to convert the drafts and trim to displacement.

    Does each of my surveyors need to sign-up individually?

    No, just do a corporate sign-up for your port, and all surveyors can download and pair their smartphone to same site. Draft surveys from all surveyoers can be accessed by your office logins.

    Do I pay for support?

    Next day response e-mail support is included in the monthly fees. Just like cloud and smartphone software, software maintenance and regular feature upgrades -also included!

    How many photos can i make?

    No limitations; you can supplement with as many photos as you like. During draft recording, you can make a snapshot of the waterline at the area you take the draft. For trim LCB adjustment, you can make a snapshop of the vessel's hydrostatic particulars. For displacement entry, you can make a snapshot of the relevant page in vessel's trim & stability book. For listing, you can snapshot the inclinometer reading. For bunkers, supplies and disposals, you can snapshot individual sounding documentation.

    All photos are sync'ed to the cloud, together with the entered values and entry points, hence you maintain a full set of relevant documentation in a single place.

    Can office later adjust the surveyor readings?

    No, the surveyor's readings, inputs and photos cannot be tampered with by office. All readings are recorded together with smartphone GPS captured location and timestamp, verifying that the captured readings have been recorded onsite in real-time.

    Which Android smartphone can be used?

    Any mobile or phablet, which can be stored safely in the logging officer's pockets, with the following minimum specs:

    • Operation System: Android 5.1
    • Screen resolution: 480x800, 4"
    • Memory: 1Gb RAM
    • GPS sensor: required
    • Camera: recommended, with autofocus

    Pay attention to display brightness - it should be suitable for work under strong sunlight. You may also consider external power bank to support 24/7 continuous work. Note that Google Play search may not find the app, if searching smartphone doesn't meet minimum requirements. See examples of inexpensive compatible Android devices.

    How does the smartphone connect to the cloud server?

    Sync via SIM data plan, or via onboard or port wifi/ wlan or hotspot.
