Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THE OBJECT OF THIS PAPER is to explain a practical instrument and method for constructing and maintaining what is variously known as a navigational, geographical or true radar plot, as contrasted with the prevalent “relative motion” technique of plotting. A further objective is to provide the watch officer with feasible means to construct and maintain such a true plot rapidly, simply and clearly, without unduly interfering with his many other duties on the navigation bridge.
