Overall, while they do have some disadvantages raster charts are an excellent complementary source of chart data in conjunction with the use of vector charts to help the mariner safely navigate.

ENCs or vector charts are required to be used if data is available.

Navmaster ECDIS is a well-established Electronic Chart Display and Information System, incorporating the input of many navigators.

It is fully compliant at low capital cost, minimal through-life costs and superior training & support services.

These charts are available via the Admiralty Raster Chart Service (ARCS) and Admiralty Vector Chart Service (AVCS) or another electronic chart service provider.

An RNC is a digital image originally scanned from paper charts into an electronic format.

Raster charts are limited in their functionality in this regard.
