Check out the product.  It updates itself over the internet and interfaces
with other technologies such as radar, GPS and sounders.  It reports on
known currents, prevailing winds, provides satellite imagery overlay and 3D
modeling of the ocean floor.  

It's immersive, fresh and conveys more information than a piece of paper
ever could.

Paper charts still have their uses, but this is an example of how it *can*
be better.
