Abstract : All indications are that technology will lead mariners to seek newer and better ways to control their ships. By looking at some of the integrated navigation systems presently available, this paper attempts to look at the problems, some of the questions raised, and some rudimentary answers associated with the electronic chart. The subject is complex and there has not been enough public discussion to make any firm determinations. This paper is aimed at stimulating thought in an effort to get members of the hydrographic community to consider the electronic chart in their future planning.
