  • Nautical mile

    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.

  • 10 reading the nautical charts types and scales

    Here are the different types and scales of charts: Sailing charts, where the scale is 1:500,000 and smaller, are used for offshore navigation beyond sight of land. The general charts have a scale of 1:150,000 - 1:500,000, and give wide-ranging offshore coverage with sufficient inshore detail to make landfall sightings easy. Fisheries charts use these scales. The coastal chart uses a scale of 1:50,000 - 1:150,000, and is used to show uninterrupted wide-ranging coverage with adequate inshore detail to make landfall sightings easy. Fisheries charts also use these scales. The approach chart has a scale of 1:15,000 - 1:50,000, and is used for approaching coasts where great detail is required. Harbour charts, which have a scale is1:5,000 - 1:15,000, are used for navigation in harbors or in...

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.

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.

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.

Here are the different types and scales of charts: Sailing charts, where the scale is 1:500,000 and smaller, are used for offshore navigation beyond sight of land. The general charts have a scale of 1:150,000 - 1:500,000, and give wide-ranging offshore coverage with sufficient inshore detail to make landfall sightings easy. Fisheries charts use these scales. The coastal chart uses a scale of 1:50,000 - 1:150,000, and is used to show uninterrupted wide-ranging coverage with adequate inshore detail to make landfall sightings easy. Fisheries charts also use these scales. The approach chart has a scale of 1:15,000 - 1:50,000, and is used for approaching coasts where great detail is required. Harbour charts, which have a scale is1:5,000 - 1:15,000, are used for navigation in harbors or intricate, hazardous, shoal-infested waters. Bar Scales: a bar scale is a graphic scale represented by a line or a bar that is subdivided into nautical miles, feet, or meters. This bar is used for measuring distances on the chart. Elevation Contours: these are lines connecting points of equal elevation. They are a graphical way of showing the shape and slope of hills and mountains that might be helpful in identifying them on the chart. Once identified, they can help identify your location on the water.

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 Office of Naval Research (ONR) demonstrates the Navy's electromagnetic railgun initial rep-rate fires of multi-shot salvos at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. The revolutionary railgun relies on a massive electrical pulse, rather than gunpowder or other chemical propellants, to launch projectiles at distances over 100 nautical miles – and at speeds that exceed Mach 6.
