Safe Distance is the horizontal clearance to dangerous
objects. Alarms are raised in advance and Warning Time is
the amount of time in advance. Before the ship is crossing the
wheel-over-line an alarm is given and the Wheel-Over-Alarm
specifies how long before.
When the ship is entering an area for which an alarm is
raised, the mariner can choose to use As Indication instead of As Alarm. The main difference
is that for an indication the buzzer is not activated. The choice of alarm or indication is made
by clicking one of the radio buttons labeled Special Condition Areas.

Default behavior is that a new AIS target gets sleeping status.
To avoid cluttering of the chart displaying of sleeping targets
can be suppressed.
Sleeping AIS targets can be automatically activated if any of
the Automatic Activation conditions is fulfilled.

Normally eGlobe gives an alarm when a target (AIS or ARPA)


is lost. The lost target alarm can be disabled or configured
to occur only for targets within a certain range. This is
done in the Target Alarm Settings form.

When AIS target filtering is active or lost target alarm is disabled this is indicated
in the upper right corner of the chart pane.

Display Motion/Moving the chart

In eGlobe, the chart picture may be presented in the same way as in a radar: RM (Relative
Motion) or TM (True Motion). The normal presentation is TM, where the ship moves in the
chart picture, with a change of pictures when the ship comes to the edge. In RM the ship stand
still and all chart information moves in small steps for each position change, the advantage
being

North Up is the native mode. The Course Up Mode is available only when a Course-overground value is present from EPFS (or GPS-receiver). The Head Up Mode is available only
when ships heading is present (Compass).
The north arrow is always shown at the top left position of the chart pane independent of

4.2.9.7

Ruler

eGlobe features several ways for measuring the distance. The presentation of any ruler is
started in this menu with the ruler key on the control unit or by clicking in the cursor
position square. The ruler is laid out by use of the trackball. The control unit can be used to
select if the distance shall be presented in meters or nautical miles.
The free ruler measures distance between two points
Ship free measures between ship and a point
Measures between ship and a locked point.

With Ship Free, the ruler position relative to the ship will always be the same; with Ship
Locked, the ruler always shows distance and bearing to the locked position, regardless of the
ships motion.

Prediction

5.1

General
One of the most advanced functions in eGlobe is the
possibility of prediction, which is the very essence of all
navigation and particularly useful in difficult waters with
poor visibility.
With prediction, a quick glance at the screen is enough to
verify that the requested maneuver is sufficient to go clear.
All predictor presentation is designed to show the trend
clearly with simple graphical elements without concealing
the chart picture.
One of the prerequisites for the predictor is the virtual
antenna, which makes it possible to correct the physical
placement of the antenna and present the antenna in the
ships turn center. This avoids parallax and position errors

in calculations and presentation.

5.2

Vector
The vector is the simplest type of prediction, which
only shows speed and course over ground. The

length of the vector represents the ships voyage


during the set time period for the vector. The heading projection, too, is shown as an
indication of the leeway.
The vector is suitable for use in open waters, where the predictors are often too sensitive,
since a ship at sea is normally allowed somewhat more space to move.

5.3

Predictor

The predictor is a more advanced type of

and course over ground and the rate of turn.

predictor, which

The predictor function is primarily intended for archipelago navigation and harbor approach,
and is particularly appreciated at poor visibility, strong winds and rapid-flowing water.
By selecting the Precision table or the Cross-over table, it is possible to change the predictor
characteristics. With the Precision table selected, the programs filter characteristics are
adapted to use for navigation in narrow waters, where all tendencies must show quickly and
clearly. With the Cross-over table selected, the filters are adapted to give a more stable

predictor and calmer numeric data.

5.4

Full Predictor
The full predictor is a highly advanced graphical presentation of the
integrated result of the ships heading projection, speed and course
over ground and rate of turn. In addition to the turn prediction, this
predictor also shows the ships sweep area, which may be
considerable during a narrow turn with a strong side wind or flowing
water.

The function is primarily intended for archipelago navigation, harbor approach, steering and
putting in, and is particularly appreciated at poor visibility, strong winds and rapid-flowing
water.
The characteristics of the full predictor can be influenced with the Precision and Cross-over
tables.

5.5

Extra Vectors
vector show the ships fore-and-aft and abeam
speed and the rate of turn (ROT).

Extra

The corner vectors are especially useful for very large


ships during complicated maneuvers at extremely low
speed, where they offer a very clear graphical illustration
of the totality of the ships motion.

5.6

Shadows
The presentation of shadows is not a prediction, but
shadows have a close relationship to prediction and
are therefore described here. The shadows show the
history in the form of a selectable number of ship
silhouettes that are drawn at a selectable interval.

They make it possible for the navigator to check


visually that the prediction is correct. Together, the shadows and the predictor clearly show if
the ships motion would diverge due to errors in the positioning or the compass.

Chart Handling
IMPORTANT!!! To avoid viruses and to ensure the eGlobe system stability
please use only a dedicated USB memory device to transfer chart data from
other sources (e.g. communication computer) into eGlobe. Please mark this
dedicated USB memory device with one of the eGlobe sticks provided.

6.1

Chart Handler
A special application Chart Handler is used to manage chart collection for eGlobe.
To start Chart Handler change to the Start Up menu application and select Chart
Handler:

It is possible to use Chart Handler running together with eGlobe but for safety
reasons we recommend that chart maintenance is done in the port when eGlobe is not
used for navigation.
On a networked installation (Master - Back Up) we recommend to use always the
same workstation for chart maintenance. All chard Data such as new SENC, Updates
and Permits as applicable will be copied to another station(s) on eGlobe network.

The precision table is especially intended for navigation in archipelagos and narrow waters. It
presents numerical and graphical information, which with very high precision guides the
navigator in following the current route. The instrument shows with meter precision exactly
how the ship adheres to the route. During turns the instrument shows a turn prognosis as an
indication of how optimally the turn will be completed.
In addition, filter parameters in the program are adjusted for prompt indication of tendencies
in ship symbol and numerical values, which helps the navigator to see any tendencies in the
ships motion at a very early stage.

8.12.3 Navigation instrument


The navigation instrument is a graphical two-dimensional description of the ships situation
relative to route. The scale normally goes in steps of 10 meters but may be changed in the
menu Configure.
The ship can be shown in scale or showing drift double-click the ship symbol to change the
display. We recommend strongly for navigation: ship showing drift
Showing drift, the drift is presented graphically as the ships turn in the
instrument, and tendencies to a course drift are shown even before the drift is a
fact. If the antenna has been moved out as a virtual antenna, the instrument
shows the position of the virtual antenna.
Ship in scale, the display is enlarged compared to the chart and the ships turn
presents the actual heading direction relative to route.
8.12.4 Navigation instrument information during straight travel
The numbers at the top represent planned route courses current course to the left, and course
after next turn to the right.
The number at the bottom represents the lateral divergence from the route in meters. The
arrow in front of the lateral divergence indicates starboard or port divergence.

8.12.7 GPS status


One of the corner-stones for exact positioning is to have control over possible errors from the
D-GPS receiver. The fact that position errors may appear at random and often in harbor areas
and narrow waters, where the need for high positions quality is critical, calls for a quick and
clear indication.
With a standard D-GPS receiver, you will see if the D-GPS receiver receives valid
corrections, number of satellites used in the position calculation and position quality based on
used satellites.
With an eGlobe-compatible D-GPS receiver, you will have complete control of the position
quality, and with those ADVETO D-GPS receivers that make use of AIM technology,
position errors are indicated with a precision down to the decimeter. It is possible to change
frequencies on the IALA receiver or change the correction source. Critical data from the DGPS receiver are displayed continuously, and these data are weighed together and presented
as a line in the position quality indicator.
For extra clearness, the position quality indicator shifts colors at pre-set breakpoint values.
With an AIM-compatible ADVETO D-GPS, green field indicates a position quality of better
than 1 meter and yellow field a position quality of 1-5 meters. Read field indicates a position
error of 5-10 meters.

Depth Colors
Shows the depth in the form of points of different colors, where the color of the point
represents the depth from the connected echo sounder. There are two different color schemes,
one for shallow waters and one for deep waters. The color scheme may be changed freely in
the system set-up to suit individual requirements.
Depth Figures
Shows the depth as depth numbers from the connected echo sounder.
If an exact position determination of the depth recording is required, the virtual antenna must
be moved out to the point where the echo-sounder sensor is placed.
N.B. The trail setting does not affect the recording of data from echo sounder. The trail
display type can be changed freely at replay.

AIS transponder and ARPA targets


General

Automatic Identification System, AIS, means that ships equipped with an AIS-transponder,
will transmit their own position (and other data). This data can be presented onboard other
ships.
The AIS-standard is a global world standard according to IMO.
It states that all ships with gross tonnage of over 300 tons must be equipped with AIS.
As a standard, eGlobe has highly advanced possibilities of receiving data from AIS-equipped
ships. The information that can be presented is: name, call signal, MMSI number, speed,
course over ground, heading, position quality, draft, destination and, in addition, the ships
actual size.
It is also possible to send text messages to other AIS-equipped ships in the area, e.g. with a
request for passage or the like.
ARPA targets from own radar can be presented in the chart picture the same way as AIS
targets. In addition, EBL and VRM and cursor position from the radar can also be presented
in the chart.

9.2.2

AIS and ARPA presentation in the chart

AIS and ARPA targets are presented in the chart automatically See the figure below.
AIS targets are presented with their names, e.g. SANDY HOOK.
Radar targets are presented as Radar and a consecutive number, e.g. Radar601
A simple presentation of data will be achieved by placing the cursor on the target, e.g.
TANKER
A single click on the symbol toggles between active and sleeping mode.
Meteorological information from weather stations can also be displayed in the chart
presentation.

ship follows the route and whether or not the time table will be upheld.
A unique eGlobe function is the dynamic F distance which (slightly simplified) can be
described as the lead required in order to start the turn so that the ship, regardless of its speed,
will actually start turning when it should.
Turning in eGlobe makes use of the internationally recognized methods Line of Turn and
Wheel over Point, which offer superior security compared to the more traditional methods
arrival alarm and bisector. The difference is illustrated by the figures below.

Idealtrack
Start of turn, normal speed

Start of turn, slow speed

Figure 64. Dynamic F distance

The dynamic F distance automatically considers the ships speed, and the Wheel-over-point
(WOP) signal is issued in time for the ship to start the turn optimally and be able to carry it
through in a calm and safe manner. The setting of the dynamic F distance can be adapted to
each ship during the system set-up, since the differences are considerable between the
different types of ships.

Idealtrack

eGlobe User Manual v 07.08.2012

With Line of Turn turn handling and the dynamic F distance, you will enter the next leg of
the route in an optimal manner, even if you choose to go into the turn wrongly, e.g. due to
passing ship.

Idealtrack

Figure 32. Bisector turn handling

Bisector turn handling produces a parallax error, which is as large when you come out of the
turn as when you enter it.
eGlobe also features the possibility of advanced control of auto pilot and DP system. eGlobe
corrects the auto pilot dynamically so that the ship automatically can follow the route with
very high precision. Integrity is maintained, since eGlobe and the auto pilot exchange data
continuously. In case of impaired integrity, the system automatically issues an alarm.
Please observe that the advanced control of autopilot described above must be approved
before taken into service.

Figure 67. Adjust turn radius

eGlobe User Manual v 07.08.2012

August 2012

Page 146

The simplest way to change the turn radius of already laid waypoints is to place the cursor
on the waypoint position; a square cursor is then displayed. You may now adjust the turn
radius by pressing [+] or [] on the keyboard or control unit.
7 Select the respective waypoint in the Edit route table and enter a suitable name, confirm
with [OK]. This name will then be presented instead of the waypoint number.
8 Define ETA and Auto-Zoom points according to the respective descriptions below.
9 End and save the route with [Route] [Save Route as] on the menu bar
10 Enter a suitable name with the keyboard and confirm with [Enter]
The route is now completed and saved; its extension and characteristics can, of course, be
changed at any time. If you want to save a change, select menu item [Route] [Save Route]
and changes will be saved permanently.
Tip! The easiest way to create a route is to use a rather large scale to lay waypoints in their
approximate positions and then zoom in and adjust each one carefully. The easiest way to
adjust the waypoint radius is by use of the control unit.
Names, speed limits, etc. (if any) may then be entered by use of the function table Edit route.
When you double-click on a waypoint number in the route editing table, the presentation
jumps to the next waypoint automatically.
As the number of routes grows, it may become easier to open an existing route and change it
to a new destination or pathway, rather than creating a completely new route. When an
existing route has been changed as required, select [Save as] and enter a new route name.

10.3.2 Adjust waypoint position


1. Place the cursor on the WP that needs to be adjusted, so that the waypoint symbol

10.7 Multi Routes


It is a great advantage to be able to handle and use Multi routes.
Depending on different alternative routes, in a fast and flexible way, route can be chosen
depending on weather, meeting with other traffic etc.
10.7.1 Making Multi Routes
It is relatively easy to make Multi Routes:
1. First make a normal route, the main route
2. Make an alternate route
3. Connect the alternate route to the main route
4. Other alternate route can then be made and connected.
First we make the main route as in example below, consists of WP0 to WP5:

Now the first alternate route will be made, remember that WP5 must be the waypoint that the
cursor last touched. In other words, do not touch any other waypoint with the cursor!
We will now make an alternate route from WP1, therefore lay cursor somewhere after WP1.
When connecting against the main-route the exact position is not critical, it should be
somewhere between WP1 and WP2.

The new waypoint on picture above is WP6.


Toggle Start Point Status: mark WP6 with cursor then press Shift-key and at the same time
left-click. Now choose Toggle Start Point Status as on picture below.

eGlobe User Manual v 07.08.2012

August 2012

Page 151

Carry on with alternate route by laying out complete alternate-route (WP6-WP7-WP8-WP9)

Mark once again WP6, press Shift-key and left-click, choose


Connect from Leg

At last, the other end on the alternate-route (WP9) shall be connected to the main route, mark
WP9, press Shift-key and left-click, choose Connect To Leg

Now we shall add another alternate-route. We start by laying some extra WP on the existing
eGlobe User Manual v 07.08.2012

August 2012

Page 152

route to make it possible for the new alternate-route to have something to connect to. (WP8
and WP2)

When adding new alternate-routes it is important that the very last WP in route are touched
and marked before we start the work with the alternate-route. If in doubt what WP that is the
very last you can always look in the Route editing table.
When last WP is touched lay out a new WP as in picture below, Toggle Start Point Status

Lay out next WP according to picture below, Connect To Leg

At last, mark WP according to picture, Connect From Leg

10.7.2 To use Multi Routes


The advantage using Multi Routes is the possibility to, in an easy - quick and flexible way,
change the route you are following. This can be done when weather, meetings with other
ships changes, there is no need for changing and loading another route anymore!
All navigation info from eGlobe will come from the chosen Multi Route: steering
information, instrument info, turning info, ETA etc.
To activate just click simply on the alternative (on a WP) that you wish to make active.
Actual alternative will be marked red as in picture below.

11 Database
11.1 General
A database is a file in the computer where information is stored. The database can be
compared to an index or register, where information is arranged systematically.
eGlobe features advanced database management. The databases can be used to supplement
Chart information or to enter own information. A standard set of symbols is delivered with the
program, but you may also draw own symbols or even delete the display of normal buoyage
in the chart and only use databases for the buoyage. Names and text information for database
objects can be displayed in the chart picture.
The database format is Microsoft database format MDB, which makes it easy to develop your
own application outside eGlobe in Microsoft Access.

11.2 Start of database


Starting a database means that its content is presented with symbols on the chart. The
database is then ready for input or editing.
To start a database:
1. Click on Database Start Database on the menu bar
2. Select a database
3. Click on [Open]
The database is active.
The name of the active database is displayed at the top of the program header, after selected
route.

11.3 Input into database


Make sure that the database you want is active.
A new database can be created with [Database] [New Database] on the menu bar.

11.3.1 Database settings


Select, under [Database] [Database settings] on the menu bar, the unit from which the
position should be retrieved, i.e. the cursor position, Virtual Antenna position or GPS antenna
position. Since the virtual antenna can be moved, it is possible to insert a database point
exactly at, for example, the crane jib position when beaconing.
eGlobe User Manual v 07.08.2012

Page 155

Database points can be assigned a name as well as a comment. Under Name and
Comment, you may select automatic input of time and/or date. The alternative Enter
means that for each new point, you will have the possibility to enter name and comment.
The format of entered database points is selected under Type, either general or at the input
occasion by the selection Enter.
11.3.2 Input of database point
1. Place the cursor on the required position in the chart.
2. Right-click and select [Position to database]
The editing window will pop up, if Name, Comment or Type has been set to Enter in the
database settings.

Figure 70. Input of database point

In this window, you may enter name, comment (any length), type. Usage is intended for
input of a scale limit for the presentation of the database point.
If you want a text in the chart by the database point, press the button Text to display the
right-hand part of the menu. Select text size by clicking on the arrows (the size is presented in
the box); Placement is used to select where, in relation to the database point, to place the text.
The tick boxes to the left of the fields Name and Comment are used to hide name or
comments for the current database point; as default they are ticked, but may easily be cleared
(no tick) if you do not want display of name or text.
Tip! If you want to lay off a database point with Lat/Lon in a known position, proceed as
described above but enter the position in the Lat/Lon windows.

12 Recording / playback
The voyage with its data from connected sensors is always recorded and cannot be turned off.
ENC source, edition, date, cell and update history are also automatically recorded in same
way as the sensor data above. The voyage can be played back and the data will be presented
on the screen. Recordings are saved per 24 hours with the date used as the file name. All
voyages made last 90 days are stored.

12.1 Recording of data


Data are recorded automatically. Own position data (GPS1-GPS2) are recorded as well as
data from other connected sensors: Gyro or other compass, AIS, Radar, Echo sounder, Wind
meter, etc.

12.2 Auto delete


To avoid that the hard disk becomes full with the risks that this entails, there is a function
which automatically deletes recordings after a certain time (90 days). Actually, the
determining factor is not age in itself, but rather the recordings file name, which always
represents the date of the recording day in the format YYYYMMDD (20010101). If you do
not want a recording to be deleted, you should save it with a different name as described
below.

12.3 Save recording as


1. Select the menu Recording Save Recording as
2. Enter a new file name (it may be 255 character long, e.g. the same date with a text added to
it): 20010101 steering engine breakdown in the Kiel canal

13 Geodetic datums
When a position on the curved surface of the earth is indicated in latitude and longitude, they
correspond to the angle measurements from the center of the earth. In the course of history,
the conception of the earths dimension and shape has been revised from time to time. This is
expressed, among other things, in a generalized model of the earth, an ellipsoid that serves as
the basis for the position-indicating circular measures.
Actually, it is impossible to present the earth on a paper chart, since the earth is round and a
paper chart flat. To achieve a paper chart that corresponds to reality as much as possible,
a large number of ellipsoids with their associated coordinate systems are used in different
countries of the world for map and chart production.

13.1 Presentation of geodetic datums


The presentation is fixed to WGS84. Selection of other Datums is NOT possible. Should
positioning system (e.g. EPFS1) provide a position with any different datum and alarm will be
given by eGlobe.

15.1 Color Differentiation test
The colors in a monitor can change when the monitor ages. Or the mariner may want to use
other setting then the calibrated settings.
For both reasons there is a tool to check that you can clearly see all details of the charts. The
Color Differentiation Test Diagram is a part of ECDIS chart 1 and you can use it as follows:
1. Choose menu About Chart 1
2. Move cursor to Color Test Diagram Click
3. Check with all palettes that you can discriminate the lines from background color
of the boxes.

17.2 Common Terms and Abbreviations explained


AIS
The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a short range coastal tracking system used on
ships and by Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) for identifying and locating vessels by
electronically exchanging data with other nearby ships and VTS stations. Information such as
unique identification, position, course, and speed can be displayed on a screen or an ECDIS.
AIS is intended to assist the vessel's watchstanding officers and allow maritime authorities to
track
and
monitor
vessel
movements.
The International Maritime Organization's (IMO) International Convention for the Safety of
Life at Sea (SOLAS) requires AIS to be fitted aboard international voyaging ships with gross
tonnage (GT) of 300 or more tons, and all passenger ships regardless of size. It is estimated
that more than 40,000 ships currently carry AIS class A equipment.

CRS
Or Course Over Ground (COG) is the direction of the path followed by the ship.
DGPS
Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) is an enhancement to Global Positioning
System that uses a network of fixed, ground-based reference stations to broadcast the
difference between the positions indicated by the satellite systems and the known fixed
positions. These stations broadcast the difference between the measured satellite
pseudoranges and actual (internally computed) pseudoranges, and receiver stations may
correct their pseudoranges by the same amount. The correction signal is for maritime use
broadcast over the LW long-wave band between 285 kHz and 325 kHz.
ECS
See ECDIS.
ECDIS
A typeapproved Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) is a computerbased navigation information system that complies with International Maritime Organization
(IMO) regulations and can be used as an alternative to paper navigation charts.
IMO refers to similar systems not meeting the regulations as Electric Chart Systems (ECS).
An ECDIS system displays the information from electronic navigational charts (ENC) and
integrates position information from the Global Positioning System (GPS) and other
navigational sensors, such as radar and automatic identification systems (AIS). It may also

eGlobe User Manual v 07.08.2012

August 2012

Page 183

display
additional
navigation-related
information.
IMO has proposed compulsory carriage of ECDIS and ENCs on high speed crafts from 1 July
2008 onwards for all new crafts, and from 1 July 2010 onwards for existing crafts.
ENC
An electronic navigational chart (ENC) is an official database created by a national
hydrographic office for use with an Electronic Chart Display and Information System
(ECDIS). An electronic chart must conform to standards stated in the International
Hydrographic Organization (IHO). Only ENCs can be used within ECDIS to meet the
International Maritime Organisation (IMO) performance standard for ECDIS.
ENCs are available through Regional Electronic Navigational Chart Coordinating Centre
(RENCs) and national electronic chart centers. Distributors like the UKHO and PRIMAR
then distribute these to chart agents. In July 2008, the first mandatory requirements for the use
of
ENC
and
ECDIS
will
become
international
law.
IHO Special Publication S-63 developed by the IHO Data Protection Security Working Group
is used to commercially encrypt and digitally sign ENC data. Chart data is captured based on
standards stated in IHO Special Publication S-57, and is displayed according to a display
format stated in IHO Special Publication S-52 to ensure consistency of data rendering
between different systems.
EPFS
Electronic Position Fixing System. Can be satellite navigation systems such as: GPS,
GLONASS, GALILEO or earthbound radiofix systems such as: DECCA, LORAN-C,
OMEGA etc.
ETA
Estimated Time of Arrival
GALILEO
Galileo is a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) currently being built by the European
Union (EU) and European Space Agency (ESA). The 3.4 billion project is an alternative and
complementary to the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Russian GLONASS. On
30 November 2007 the 27 EU transportation ministers involved reached an agreement that it
should be operational by 2013.
GLONASS
GLONASS (abbreviation "GLObal NAvigation Satellite System" in English) is a radio-based
satellite navigation system, developed by the former Soviet Union and now operated for the

eGlobe User Manual v 07.08.2012

August 2012

Page 184

Russian government by the Russian Space Forces.


Development on the GLONASS began in 1976, with a goal of global coverage by 1991.
Beginning on 12 October 1982, numerous rocket launches added satellites to the system until
the constellation was completed in 1995. Following completion, the system rapidly fell into
disrepair with the collapse of the Russian economy. Beginning in 2001, Russia committed to
restoring the system, and in recent years has diversified, introducing the Indian government as
a partner, and accelerated the program with a goal of restoring global coverage by 2009.
Great Circle
The great circle, also known as the Riemannian circle, is the path with the smallest curvature,
and hence, an arc (or an orthodrome) of a great circle is the shortest path between two points
on the surface. The distance between any two points on a sphere is therefore known as the
great-circle distance. The great-circle route is the shortest path between two points across the
surface of a sphere
GPS
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a U.S. space-based global navigation satellite
system. It provides reliable positioning, navigation, and timing services to worldwide users on
a continuous basis in all weather, day and night, anywhere on or near the Earth.
GPS is made up of three parts: between 24 and 32 satellites in Medium Earth Orbit, four
control and monitoring stations on Earth, and the actual navigation devices users own. GPS
satellites broadcast signals from space that GPS receivers use to provide three-dimensional
location (latitude, longitude, and altitude) plus the time.

IMO
IMO is a specialized agency of the United Nations with 169 Member States and three
Associate Members, IMO is based in the United Kingdom with around 300 international staff.
IMO's specialized committees and sub-committees are the focus for the technical work to
update existing legislation or develop and adopt new regulations, with meetings attended by
maritime experts from Member Governments, together with those from interested
intergovernmental
and
non-governmental
organizations.
The result is a comprehensive body of international conventions, supported by hundreds of
recommendations governing every facet of shipping. There are, firstly, measures aimed at the
prevention of accidents, including standards for ship design, construction, equipment,
operation and manning - key treaties include SOLAS, the MARPOL convention for the
prevention of pollution by ships and the STCW convention on standards of training for
seafarers.

Rhumbline
A rhumb line (or loxodrome) is a line crossing all meridians of longitude at the same angle,
i.e. a path derived from a defined initial bearing. That is, upon taking an initial bearing, one
proceeds along the same bearing, without changing the direction as measured relative to true
north.
