Figure 7. A section of ENC – pl4map37 [source: simulator TRANSAS Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS-i] From the navigator's perspective, area encoding is the most convenient method, used by the Hydrographic Department of the Finnish Maritime Administration. Figure 8. A section of ENC – fi59s191 [source: simulator TRANSAS Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS-i] After a cursor pick of any point on the chart free from other navigational information in the Info option, the operator obtains data on all attributes of magnetic variation.

The application domain is limited to the open sea including some ENC objects for real-time onboard calculation, but the extension to coastal waters is now going on. This system has been successfully confirmed by using various simulations and the verification through sea trial is now prepared. AIS: Automatic Identification System ARPA: Automatic Radar Plotting Aid ECDIS: Electronic Chart Display and Information System ENC: Electronic Navigational Chart 1 INTRODUCTION 2 SYSTEM STRUCTURE For the navigational safety, a lot of systems supporting pilot’s decision have been developed and the development of new products continues now.

Figure 9. Presentation of magnetic variation attributes on ENCs [source: simulator TRANSAS Navi-Sailor 3000 ECDIS-i] 6 SUMMARY REFERENCES The role of gyrocompass and magnetic compass during daily operation of the ship cannot be overestimated. Although the gyrocompass is used during most manoeuvres, and the magnetic compass is nowadays regarded as an emergency device, its presence, skillful use and knowledge of data reliability make up an important factor for the safety of navigation. Many a navigator on the bridge has experienced problems with a gyrocompass.
