What are the benifits and advantage of ECDIS (Electronic chart display and Information System)?

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

BENEFITS OF ECDIS

  • Reduced workload for the navigator (charts and nautical publications updating, voyage planning, all information in “one hand”).

  • Navigation in real-time increases situational awareness in combination with proper lookout.

  • Automatic route monitoring (warnings and indications of hazards to the operator, in time arrivals).

  • Automatic track control (reduces bunker costs), if ECDIS is connected to the autopilot

  • Prediction of special manoeuvres (predicted path, trial manoeuvre, docking mode).

  • Availability of a chart during the night without night vision loss.

  • Access to additional information resources
