    So just how to use ECDIS? You need to do the course… or read the manual of the system your operating. ECDIS operating systems are unique to the manufacturer.

    1) All ECDIS use WGS84 ultimately.

    2) If the information is available it can be forund in the pick report. Some ECDIS also allow overlays from programs such as totaltide.

    3) Not sure exactly what you mean. I guess you mean the drawing tools which you can use in the same (and more) as parallel rules and a compass/deviders.

    4) Chart symbols are standerdised by the IHO. On all ECDIS you can open “Chart 1” which shoes these. There is also NP5012 but you have to pay for that. [](
