Have a look into this second, completely revised edition of the Modern Chartwork publication. In preparing the contents of this edition, the author tried to make his work completely up-to-date with all recent advancements in the field of marine chartwork. Of course, this did not affect the theoretical part of the book since the essentials of the subjects have not changed at all – these would include the use of the nautical charts, for example.

There are several completely new chapters included in the volume and one of them is devoted to the worked practical examples as they will definitely be of great practical use to the trainees. As we know, the navigation itself is the art of bringing ship from one port to another across seas and oceans, if we are talking of maritime navigation.

The coastal navigation together with the pilotage is considered the integral parts of this art – they would deal with the safe ship navigation and handling during approaching to the port. This would of course require sound theoretical knowledge, due understanding and significant practical experience of all those involves in the navigation activities as any mistake can result in the tragic consequences.
