An Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) is a Geographic Information System (GIS) which is used for maritime navigation that acts in accordance with the regulations of the International Maritime Organization as a substitute to paper maritime charts. The ECDIS is used by naval vessels and ships globally.
The Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) is transforming the marine industry. The implementation of electronic chart display and information systems is providing cost-effective and safer navigation for the marine industry globally. ECDIS delivers constant navigational and positional safety information and triggers alarms when the vessel is close to navigational hazards.
An electronic chart displays the data from nautical charts or electronic charts and assimilates information from speed and position via water reference systems and also by the navigational sensors. Other sensors which can edge with a chart and information system are Depth Sounders, Navtex, Radar, and automatic identification systems.
Furthermore, according to the International Maritime Organization, ships and vessels equipped with electronic navigational charts did not require to carry manual paper charts. The agreement fee for such navigational charts is defined on the basis of number of units, contract period, and types of electronic navigational charts.
Safety needs associated with the International Maritime Organization regulations, growth in trend toward navigational systems, and development of the aircraft and maritime industry globally are anticipated to drive the global electronic chart display and the information system (ECDIS) market during the forecast period (2019-2027).
