A request to take part in a survey:

“Smartcom Software are members of the ALIS consortium, researching the latest technology for keeping yachtsmen informed of relevant information – weather forecasts, navigation warnings, chart corrections, sailing instructions, berth availabilities, shoreside facilities and so on. The ALIS project (At Sea location based Information Service) is supported by Galileo, looking at next generation location based services for the marine sector. You can see more information about ALIS at www.alismarine.co.uk

We are asking for yachtsmen to volunteer a few minutes of their time, to help us assess some of the ideas that we are working with, by filling in our online questionnaire. You can do this by going to the User Feedback section on the web site, where there is a set of pages giving information on the ALIS service, and on the last page a link to the on-line questionnaire.

The service is also being trialled in the central English Channel, northern Denmark and the South of France, and the ALIS web site has available the trial software (as a free download) to enable you to actually use the service, and give us further feedback. The trial service will be operational until the end of April 2007 and possibly beyond.”
