Overreliance on ECDIS

What should have been a routine re-routing becomes an expensive and career-ending error when a crew relying on ECDIS fails to assess the reliability of the ship’s electronic nautical charts (ENC), which were based on information from the 1960's. Don't let it happen to you!

Topics:

  • Get to know where the ENC data within ECDIS technology comes from.
  • Understand why you still need to assess the reliability of your ship’s electronic nautical charts (ENC).
  • Understand why the Category Zones of Confidence (CATZOC) codes for ENC data are important to know.
  • Learn why sufficient voyage planning has to include traditional skills like conferring with local pilots, consulting pick reports, and identifying sector lights.
