  3. Bathymetric ENCs in Confined Waters

    Electronic charts with greater scale and bathymetric content than any Hydrographic Office’s ENC (equivalent to a paper nautical chart) are not a novelty for many ports around the world.

The Australian Hydrographic Office (AHO) has experimented with, and now published, High Density (HD) Bathymetric Electronic Navigation Charts (bENCs) for two ports, with more under development. Why are High Density Bathymetric ENCs so important for the conduct of vessels in
    confined waters? Why is it so important that these ENCs become available to both ECDIS and PPUs?

We define our basic ability for survival as ‟trial and error.” Do it again and do it right.
