Figure 1. indd 38 4/27/2013 12:05:58 PM The symbol RN: 166, if the symbol is cursor picked, the value of magnetic variation will be displayed. Another solution is to present variation in a given area. In that case the symbol RN:167 is presented, which does not require to be precisely picked by the cursor that can only be placed in its vicinity. After cursor picking of a given symbol and pressing Enter, we get information on values of particular attributes. 7 of Appendix B to S–57 standard legislators used a vague imperative referring to requirements of presenting information on magnetic variation on ENC charts: … 'The ENC may contain information about magnetic variation, …', which can be understood as a permission rather than a definite data presentation requirement that has to be met.

4 of the SOLAS Convention provides requirement that all ships regardless of size should carry navigational charts and nautical publications for planning and presenting voyage routes and for plotting and checking ship's position. At the same time, the same paragraph provides that ECDIS systems may be recognized as satisfying the requirement of that paragraph concerning possession of navigational charts on board. 86 (70), Performance Standards for Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS)).

86 (70), Performance Standards for Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS)). One of the standards reads that only an ENC (Electronic Navigational Chart) may be used with an ECDIS system. ENC is a database, with standardized contents, structure and format, created in governmentapproved hydrographic offices. ENC contains all cartographic information necessary for safe navigation. indd 37 4/27/2013 12:05:58 PM electronic chart has to meet S-57 standards (IHO S57, “IHO Transfer Standard for Digital Hydrographic Data”), issued by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO).
