The sixth edition of the UK Hydrographic Office monthly e-newsletter is now available.
Says the newsletter: “The start of a busy new year is always a good time to reflect on the last 12 months. For the UKHO and the maritime community as a whole, 2009 signalled the start of a new phase of marine navigation. In June, the IMO’s ECDIS Mandate was approved and is now due to be introduced on a rolling timeframe according to vessel type from 2012, while in December, we launched our vision for the future of navigation with the introduction of Admiralty e-Navigator. These landmarks mean 2010 marks the beginning of an exciting transition towards digital navigation.
