9780415482462: The Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS): An Operational Handbook

Electronic navigation, although still relatively new, is becoming increasingly more common, particularly on commercial vessels. This handbook offers a wealth of detailed information about how different charting systems operate and answers the most commonly asked questions regarding electronic charts (ENC, RNC, DNC) and electronic chart systems (ECDIS, RCDS, ECS). The first resource to provide so much detail on all facets of ECDIS and Electronic Charting Systems, it is certain to serve as the bible for ECDIS users for years to come. It not only provides information for training programs but also for engineers maintaining ECDIS Systems in the field.

The book will be of specific interest to those who need to know about selection, implementation, operational use, benefits, and management of these systems, without getting into the technical details of how ECDIS/GIS actually works.

Review:

"I look forward to having Captain Weintrit’s handbook readily available on my ship for student and officer use. I think it will be a great addition to our Maritime Education and the courses at our academies. I enthusiastically endorse his effort and professionalism without reservation."
--Captain Larry Wade, Master, Training Ship STATE OF MAINE, Adjunct Professor, Department of Marine Transportation, Maine Maritime Academy, USA

"Though it is lengthy for a handbook, I feel the objective as stated by the author is achieved. It is a valuable resource to be utilized for the education of industry professionals in the implantation and management of ECDIS."
--Captain Bill Erlanson, Senior Deck Training Officer aboard the Training Ship STATE OF MAINE; Adjunct Professor in the Department of Marine Transportation at Maine Maritime Academy

"For a long time to come, it will be the technical bible for ECDIS for not only providing information for training programs but also for engineers maintaining ECDIS Systems in the field."
--George W. Kimball, Electronics Certifier, Instructor and Evaluator, Training Ship STATE OF MAINE, Retired Manager Raytheon Marine Systems, USA
