Nautical Publications

In addition to nautical charts of Danish, Greenlandic and Faroese waters, Danish Geodata Agency also produces a number of nautical publications. The following publications, as well as our weekly Danish Chart Corrections, are available in English.

Behind the Nautical Chart 
is a tool for understanding the surveying, reliability and use of nautical charts. The improved accuracy of satellite systems and the increased use of electronic navigational charts have led navigators to expect much more from their nautical charts than the charts are generally able to live up to. This publication offers a better understanding of the surveying process behind Denmark’s nautical charts.

Kort 1 • INT 1 
describes the symbols, abbreviations and terms used on Danish Geodata Agency's nautical charts. The text meets the International Hydrographic Organization's Chart Specifications, which were ratified at the 12th International Conference on Hydrography in Monaco in 1982.
