I strongly believe that if we deal with the ECDIS with correct approach, it would not be that difficult as it might look, specially to the seafarers working with the ECDIS for the first time.
The correct approach is comparison with the paper chart. I believe if everyone deal with ECDIS with that approach, it will just be a cake walk. If we know how to do each of this on ECDIS, we know most about ECDIS.
They argue that shrinking the width and height of paper chart to a 21 inch screen can bring too many confusions.
They also argue that ECDIS should not be primary means of navigation till the time all ambiguities are eliminated and procedures streamlined. In this post I am trying to streamline some of the procedures related to ECDIS.
Navi-Planner 4000 sets a new standard for safe and efficient voyage planning.
This innovative solution from Transas provides a single access point for all information needed for every step of the navigation process.
