This 2020 edition of ECDIS Passage Planning and Watchkeeping provides best practice techniques and guidance in the use of ECDIS.

 

A correctly configured ECDIS is a powerful means of navigation. To obtain the complete benefits of ECDIS and be confident in its use, a good ECDIS operator will:

 

  • Be proficient in setting up the ECDIS, particularly the safety settings and the display optimisation

  • be aware that ECDIS is always going to provide a ‘position’, understanding how that position has been derived and able to confirm its accuracy

  • take the responsibility to gain an in-depth knowledge of ECDIS.

 

Learning how to use ECDIS thoroughly, and mentoring others to do the same, contributes towards a safer ship operation and a more effective bridge team. Practising the use of every function and technique available on the ECDIS is one of the most effective ways an officer can improve their core competencies at sea. It is one of the few areas where a junior officer can develop knowledge and experience that can be shared with fellow bridge team members.
