EXPERIENCE WITH THE USAGE OF "LARGE SCALE ECDIS"
This paper discusses the use of Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) to aid in large ship navigation. An ECDIS consists of a computer with software for displaying the chart, global positioning system (GPS), and functions to record information about speed, position, and course. Sometimes an ECDIS will include a compass, radar and echo sounder too. The ECDIS is an important safety component. With large ships, it is often impossible for the ship's pilot to view the essential parts of the ship necessary to navigate it through narrow channels. The ECDIS makes this safe navigation possible. The paper gives examples of large ships using these navigation systems, and also describes other uses for the ECDIS.
