Chartplotter / Ecosounders
A Chartplotter is a device used in marine navigation that integrates GPS data with an electronic navigational chart. (ENC)
The chartplotter displays the ENC along with the position, heading and speed of the ship, and may display additional information from radar, automatic information systems (AIS) or other sensors as echo sounder.
Echo sounding is a type of SONAR used to determine the depth of water by transmitting sound pulses into water and locate fish underwater by detecting reflected pulses
The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automatic tracking system used on ships and by vessel traffic services (VTS) for identifying and locating vessels.
Is a collision avoidance system that gives information all the ships in your area, their speed and courses and how to contact them (name, call sign, MMSI).
