The nice circle calculator (orthodrome) let’s you discover the gap, preliminary course and final course between a departure and arrival place. It also calculates the vertex and performs some analysis: cross track analysis, secure latitude evaluation and waypoint calculation along the nice circle. The calculation particulars present totally different methods like ABC tables, Haversine and Napier. Read the help pages rigorously.

Finally with the ETA calculator you identify date and local time of arrival based mostly on voyage information like pace and distance.

Our concept part is once more a reference on nautical charts and on fundamental chart plotting. The introduction is about SOLAS and IMO necessities.
