A navigation map is a derivative map that is used in determining the position and direction or navigation. Navigation maps can be land, sea, and air navigation maps. As the name implies, the navigation map is adapted for use for navigation on land, sea, or air.
Marine Navigation Map (Nautical Chart)
A marine navigation map or nautical chart is a topographic map of the maritime area and surrounding coastal areas. This map contains information found in maritime areas such as sea depth, land height, natural features such as seabeds, detailed coastlines, tide, and current information, details of local magnetic fields, and man-made products such as lighthouses, bridges, and ports.
Navigation maps are important to use in shipping because they are very useful for directing the ship to the port or to the destination dock. In addition, because this map also contains the topography of the seabed and rocks, this map can help ships to avoid reefs so that the ship does not sink. Marine navigation maps are made in color for ease of use. The difference in color is given to the features of man-made, land, the seabed which is visible at low tide, the seabed which is always underwater, and also the depth of the water. Depth is calculated from the datum chart according to IHO standards. Usually used LAT (Lowest Astronomical Tide), which is the lowest tide predicted for the full tide cycle. However, in areas that do not experience tides, MSL (Mean Sea Level) is usually used.
