Electronic marine navigation has passed a critical waypoint – the vast majority of all vessels navigating the seas and engaged in the international maritime shipping have the ECDIS installed on board. This landmark shall be treated as one of the most important milestone in the long journey.
There are so many procedures that have been established during the past decades relating to the electronic navigation and that shall be used by the practicing ship navigators, developers and suppliers of the navigation charts, hydrographic offices and others.
As a result, the ECDIS was first accepted by the IMO as the substitute to the traditional paper charts. Moreover, there are many regulations developed by the IMO in this respect and the provisions of subject rules and regulations shall be complied with at all times. This fourth and latest edition of the publication features the completely revised contents.
The authors have provided the descriptions of the essentials for the development of the shipboard electronic navigation systems together with the recommendations for their use covering the associated technical functions and limitations imposed. The general guidance have been provided on the use of these systems as well as training and certification aspects.
