Digital Navigation

Admiralty Digital Products come in a variety of formats. Below you’ll find descriptions of the most commonly used Admiralty digital products and how they can benefit your vessel.

Vessels utilize Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) to work with digital charts and other navigational data. International Maritime Organization (IMO) SOLAS regulations allow the use of ECDIS on your vessel to meet carriage requirements for charts, provided Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) are loaded and a suitable backup is also available.

Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) are digital vector charts produced to the International Hydrographic Organization’s (IHO’s) standards (S57 Version 3.1 and ENC Product Specification). They are referred to World Geodetic System 1984 Datum (WGS84) and are regularly updated with official information distributed digitally.

Hydrographic offices do not take any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of privately produced, unofficial charts.

The Admiralty Vector Chart Service (AVCS) brings together Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) from national Hydrographic offices around the world and new ENC coverage produced by UKHO in co-operation with Foreign Governments to provide comprehensive, official, worldwide coverage.

AVCS contains only ENC data that meets SOLAS Carriage Requirements for use within Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS).

Admiralty Raster Chart Service (ARCS) is the UKHO’s paper chart portfolio presented in a digital format. More than 3000 charts provide extensive, official coverage of international commercial shipping routes, main ports and harbors at a comprehensive range of scales. ARCS charts are licensed on a chart-by-chart basis to give you maximum flexibility – you only have to pay for the charts you need.
