This volume is the second book of the set released by the Nautical Institute and devoted to the modern navigation techniques. While the first book of the series addressed Radar and AIS, this one is dealing with the ECDIS and Positioning. We would obviously recommend all our visitors to go through the content of each of the books in order to get a clear picture and understanding of all navigational equipment and techniques that are in use today.
Though such equipment and satellite positioning systems and electronic charts have been in use for quite a while, not too much information is readily available there for the mariners concerning their prior use on board. This volume will make an attempt o redress this situation. The two technologies addressed in this book go hand to hand. The content of the book has been divided in three sections.
The first section provides general overview of geodetic and positioning basics so make readers able to understand the subsequent material. The rest of the volume takes readers through the most popular e-positioning systems such as GPS and GLONASS, eLoran, Galileo and others including inertial and differential systems, electronic charts, covering statutory issues that shall be considered as necessary, and provide lots of other useful information, instructions and data that will all be of great use for the practicing navigators willing to be up-to-date with the modern technology.
