Abstract

The author fondly reminisces how he used to use paper charts to plan and navigate his seafaring adventures, but now has embraced digital chart technologies and applications that are even more useful and orienting. He also recounted a virtual experience he had using Google Ocean, and marveled that though the app has mapped much of the ocean, he has discovered there is a 100 square mile area in the Gulf of Maine, which the app does not have data for.
