Electronic sea charts

Electronic nautical charts

Similar to the classic nautical chart made of paper, the electronic nautical charts also present accurate information and cartographic reference details on waters. The digital variant to the paper nautical charts is used thereby on special map plotters or as navigation software. On the maps you can find all the essential details such as safety depth contours, port plans, tides, currents and much more.

Electronic nautical charts are used both on cargo ships and commercial shipping as well as on yachts, ferries and even when fishing. A prerequisite for use is a chart plotter.

Under certain conditions, such as the possibility of a back up system, electronic nautical charts can even completely replace the classic paper charts. Nevertheless, the traditional paper charts are still part of the basic equipment on boats and ships, because in the event of power failures, mechanical effects or water damage, electronic nautical charts can also fail once. Depending on the area of use, nautical charts, especially for commercial shipping and official nautical charts must be regularly checked and corrected, but this is not continuously required in the area of recreational boats.

The right nautical chart for every body of water

Meanwhile, electronic nautical charts are available from many well-known manufacturers. Whether inland fishing, maps for coastal waters or maps specifically for sailors and anglers, electronic nautical charts are similar to the paper nautical charts available for any body of water. Electronic nautical charts are also the perfect accessories for sport fishermen and water sports enthusiasts.
