V-ATL-A GULF OF SAINT LAWRENCE Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) are vector charts or "smart charts" and carry additional information not available in paper or raster charts. ENCs carry a wealth of geo-spatial intelligence within the data and have a database of information associated with them. On an ENC chart, you can click on different features, such as a light or buoy, and retrieve additional information. For example, a wharf appears only as an image on a raster chart, but an ENC can identify it as a wharf and attach attributes to the wharf, such as height, length, age, ownership, number of berths and facilities – data that might otherwise be available only by consulting the relevant printed Sailing Directions. ENC charts also allow users more control over the display of the chart, such as the ability to turn different layers of information on and off. Because ENCs offer more powerful navigational flexibility and tools, they are used by many commercial ships. When combined with GPS, radar, ship course, speed and draft in an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), ENCs become part of a powerful system that allows mariners to know their ship’s position instantly and accurately and to be warned of dangerous situations.
