Chart Plotters System Descriptions
A chart plotter indicates a ship's position by means of a light mark on a chart overlaid on a plot table. The light mark continuously shows the ship's position using data supplied from another positioning system. With the reduction of the chart workload, personnel can focus their attention on maneuvering the ship, keeping watch, and other tasks.
