ECDIS Data Presentation and Performance Check in Ships
INSTRUCTIONS and RESULTS REPORTING FORM
The IHO has produced two simple fictitious ENC datasets that are designed to alert mariners to the possibility that their ECDIS software may require upgrading. Results from the checks will enable the IHO to identify how the different brands of ECDIS display and handle chart data. This information will be used to inform the IMO, national Hydrographic Offices, ECDIS manufacturers and others, so that they can take any corrective action that may be necessary.
