How to Read a Nautical Chart
by Calder, Nigel
2nd ed. In 2000 the U.S. government ceased publication of Chart No. 1, the booklet that helped mariners make sense of the complex symbols and graphic elements used on charts. Calder has pulled together all the information contained in the original and presented it in a useful and intuitive format. He also covers electronic chart symbols and a thorough explanation of the practical aspects of reading a nautical chart.
