Description: How to Read a Nautical Chart is the second edition of a well known guide, focused on how to read a paper or electronic chart and understand the significance of the all information contained in it. The book is divided into two parts.
- Part 1 deals with theoretical and background information underlying the construction of charts, both paper and electronicis, and is the base for understanding methods and details of surveying and chart-making, such as horizontal and vertical datums, chart projections, the limits of surveying and charting accuracy, and the potential errors inherent in developing electronic charts.
- Part 2 concentrates on the symbols used on charts, and is also useful as a handy reference. It is essentially an annotated version of the international chart INT-1, published by several administrations according to the guidelines of International Hydrographic Organization (IHO): Nautical Chart Symbols, Abbreviations, and Terms. This part has been enriched by explanatory notes, additional detail, and a large number of illustrations from a wide variety of charts.
