    Author: Gale, Harry

    Published: 2013

    When the first edition of this book was Published: in 2009, the mandatory carriage of ECDIS had been agreed at IMO but implementation seemed a long way off. On 1 July 2012 a comprehensive rolling phase-in schedule began and this second edition recognises that practical guidance on equipment, training and operational practices is now needed urgently.

    Everything you need to understand in order to manage this fundamental change from navigating by paper charts to navigating by ECDIS is covered. This theoretical knowledge is made real through contributions from the sea-going members of The Nautical Institute who have been using electronic charts for some time. Unsurprisingly, many of these contributions relate to training.

    Best practice is encapsulated in the industry recommendations for ECDIS training and familiarisation (including a familiarisation checklist), drawn up by a group coordinated by the Institute, which are included as appendices.

     

    The MS SeaReader platform is accessible to individuals as well as shipping companies. It provides a digital technical library on board or in the office. The books are in PDF format. They are always available and constantly kept up to date.

    The publications are displayed in a digital format that is quick and efficient to navigate whether the user is online or offline. It is a flexible system and can be moved from device to device seamlessly. The catalogue offers an easy overview of the publications with an optimized search filter.

     

    The software is Windows-only, and Macs are not supported.

    Once purchased, we cannot accept returns.


    The digital library is easy to access and update and you don’t need to be online to access the publications. SeaReader makes compliance inspections easy by having the latest mandatory publications on board at all times.
    The shipping costs and administration associated with maintaining a paper library are removed - there are no physical books to ship and the entire library is updated with the click of a button.

    SeaReader contains Flag State Regulations from Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Canada, Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Denmark, Hong Kong, Isle of Man, Liberia, Malta, Marshall Islands, Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Singapore, United Kingdom, USA and Red Ensign Group. Included e-books from IMO, Brown, Son & Ferguson, Imray, and a growing list of other maritime publishers.

    SeaReader is a digital technical catalogue for use on board vessels. It stores all of the publications that are needed on board and displays them in a digital format that is fast and easy to use.

    SeaReader keeps the administrative work on board to a minimum as the latest set of publications are always available.
    The easy to use system makes it quick and easy to see what books are on board the vessel. One annual licence provides access to paid for ebooks on two separate PCs.

    SeaReader is simple, very easy and intuitive to use. With one-click updating and filtered search results, it is quick and easy to find the information you need. There is no need for additional work to make sure your vessel is flag state compliant, as SeaReader does this for you.
