ECDIS Basics, A Guide to the Operational Use of Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems
Without doubt ECDIS is one of the most complex and advanced navigation aids on board a ship and it is therefore almost inevitable that all SOLAS ships will be equipped with it. High quality training and instruction are therefore essential requirements and this is where this book can play an important role. The aim of the book is to convey practical knowledge about ECDIS. For less experienced users, the book will help provide an in-depth overview of ECDIS navigation principles and its challenges. However, it is likely that advanced ECDIS operators will also find new answers and useful suggestions for ECDIS navigation in this book. Based on the principles of the IMO Model Course 1.27, the book will be used in many training centers around the world and is suitable for all kinds of ECDIS courses in different settings. It is compatible with Videotel and Safebridge e-learning courses.
