From the developer:

OpenCPN is a chartplotter navigation software designed to be used at the helm station of your boat. It lets you chart a course and track your position right from your laptop. It can also accept AIS input for target-tracking and collision alerting. AIS for automatic MOB handling is also possible with SART having selectable MMSI.

You may want to check out more software, such as Medion GoPal Assistant, POIbase or OziExplorer, which might be similar to OpenCPN.
