Taking into account your last position, and after comparing the nautical chart's coast line with that on the radar screen, you spot two points on the screen, A and B, from where you can take distances. The equivalent ones on the nautical chart are points A and B. Using the radar's range marker you measure a distance of 5.2 nautical miles from point A, and 2.8 nautical miles from point B.

    The nautical mile (symbol M, NM or nmi) is a unit of distance that is approximately one minute of arc measured along any meridian. By international agreement it has been set at 1,852 metres exactly (about 6,076 feet). It is a non-SI unit (although accepted for use in the International System of Units by the BIPM) used especially by navigators in the shipping and aviation industries, and also in polar exploration. It is commonly used in international law and treaties, especially regarding the limits of territorial waters. It developed from the sea mile and the related geographical mile.

It remains in use worldwide because of its convenience when working with charts. Most nautical charts use the Mercator projection, whose scale varies by about a factor of 6 from the equator to 80° latitude, so charts covering large areas cannot use a single linear scale. The nautical mile is nearly equal to a minute of latitude on a chart, so a distance measured with a chart divider can be roughly converted to nautical miles using the chart's latitude scale. The nautical mile is commonly used in international law and treaties, especially regarding the limits of territorial waters.

You can obtain a fix by combining two or more distances or distances and compass bearings. This is how you plot a fix position combining two or more distances: Let's assume you sail near the coast. The radar is in good working condition and in operation. Taking into account your last position, and after comparing the nautical chart's coast line with that on the radar screen, you spot two points on the screen, A and B, from where you can take distances. The equivalent ones on the nautical chart are points A and B. Using the radar's range marker you measure a distance of 5.2 nautical miles from point A, and 2.8 nautical miles from point B. You note the time - let's assume it is 0930 hours. Then return to the nautical chart, and using the dividers, span a distance of 5.2 nautical miles on the latitude scale which is closest to the present position and which runs along the sides of the chart. Apply this span, placing one leg of the dividers at point A, and draw a semicircle near the course line. Now span a distance of 2.8 nautical miles and apply this span, placing one leg of the dividers at point B, and draw a second semicircle intersecting the first semicircle and near the course line. The point where the two semicircles intersect is the fix position at 0930 hours.

This educational video is about how to understand nautical charts. A nautical chart is a graphic representation of a maritime area and adjacent coastal regions. Depending on the scale of the chart, it may show depths of water and heights of land (topographic map), natural features of the seabed, details of the coastline, navigational hazards, locations of natural and human-made aids to navigation, information on tides and currents, local details of the Earth's magnetic field, and human-made structures such as harbors, buildings and bridges. Nautical charts are essential tools for marine navigation; many countries require vessels, especially commercial ships, to carry them. Nautical charting may take the form of charts printed on paper or computerized electronic navigational charts. Recent technologies have made available paper charts which are printed "on demand" with cartographic data that has been downloaded to the commercial printing company as recently as the night before printing. With each daily download, critical data such as Local Notice to Mariners is added to the on-demand chart files so that these charts will be up to date at the time of printing.

The nautical mile (symbol M, NM or nmi) is a unit of distance that is approximately one minute of arc measured along any meridian. By international agreement it has been set at 1,852 metres exactly (about 6,076 feet). It is a non-SI unit (although accepted for use in the International System of Units by the BIPM) used especially by navigators in the shipping and aviation industries, and also in polar exploration. It is commonly used in international law and treaties, especially regarding the limits of territorial waters. It developed from the sea mile and the related geographical mile.
