Abstract [en]

The three-dimensional geo database is used as a temporal and dynamic decision support on the bridge. The intention being to collect all crucial navigational information into one display directly in front of the Officer of the Watch (OOW). With the camera positioned by GPS-data in the 3D-model the display provides a direct comparison with the out-of-window-view. Thus serving as a dynamic perspective view of the same type as the static views supplied of important entrances in pilot books. Navigational information such as names of islands, borders of the navigational channels, speed limits, lighthouse characters etc. can be displayed on the screen. In this way making it unnecessary to paint the names of islands directly on the rock, as the Russian navy did in the 1800-hundreds in frustration over the difficulty of navigating in the complicated Finnish archipelago. (Collinder, 1943) But also the changing view of coast and archipelago due to the rise and fall of the tide can be displayed. Thus making it possible to conduct daylight navigation at night or in restricted visibility.
