Review by:
If anyone wants to understand "Electronic Charts" in the maritime environment this book is a "must read". Not only does it touch all major aspects, it is also easy to read. Most importantly it also highlights the limitations and addresses key aspects, like need for update.
Within my team it is mandated to read and it should be in reach for anyone dealing with maritime electronic charts. (Posted on 3/30/2017)
