Se-woong Oh, Jong-Min Park
Nautical Publications is a special purpose book, or a specially compiled database, that is issued officially by or on the authority of a Government, authorized Hydrographic Office and is designed to meet the requirements of marine navigation such as SOLAS and P5C Nautical publications include List of Lights, Sailing directions. The SNPWG(standardization Nautical Publications Working Group) from the IHO is working to implement in computer systems all those elements of interest for Hydrography and Navigation Concerning nautical publications' digitization process, the SNPWG has defined three types of nautical publications: Type 1 : Hard copy(NP1), Type 2 : Digital version, A slight modification of type 1(NP2), Type 3 : Digital version for ECDIS(NP3). Nautical Publications ís essential wíth nautical charts as reference information to navigate. Development of digital nautical publications is needed for liaison with the chart productíon system, up-to-dateness of hydrographíc information, improvement of service. But, Korean status ís positioned in NP1. In our study, we surveyed the present status of nautical publications for development strategy of digital nautical publications. We build database of south coast of sailing direction, develop a manager program, convert the contents to KML(Keyhole Markup Language), develop a user program.
