Portraying e-Navigation Information: Challenges and Opportunities


It was stated that the presentation would reinforce the previous one. It started with the definition of e-Navigation and the IMO‟s vision of it, before turning to perceived challenges, which were then expounded on. This included coverage of what you need to see is what you want to do, the definitions involving data versus information and portrayal versus presentation. It was said that there are 6 basic ways in which to portray any e-Navigation information, a topic that was then illustrated by examples, including symbology and Marine Information Overlays (MIO). The challenges in displaying ASM information and harmonising chart information, of which three options were shown, were mentioned. e-Navigation should allow more time to look out of the window and what must be avoided is information overload.
