LORAN-C AND THE NAUTICAL CHART

The author has been involved in all aspects of the production and maintenance in the UK of Admiralty charts in support of marine navigation. In particular, he has been concerned with the modernization of the chart series in metric form and with the provision of lattice overprints that correlate with them the system coordinates of all the earth-based electronic position-fixing systems used in surface navigation. He briefly reviews the development of latticed charts and explains their advantages. He then explains how charts to be latticed are selected. Lastly, he discusses a systematic program for the provision of Loran-C lattices for European waters.
