Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS)

The ECDIS is considered an important milestone for shipping and within the IMO framework for E navigation defined as “the  harmonized  collection, integration,  exchange,  presentation  and analysis of marine information on board and ashore by electronic means to enhance berth to berth navigation  and  related  services  for  safety  and  security  at  sea  and  protection  of  the  marine environment.”

It is no surprise that with The ECDIS installation schedule having passed end in July 2018, most ships have thus made the transition from paper to digital navigation.
