A nautical chart is one of the most fundamental tools available to the mariner. It is a map that depicts the configuration of the shoreline and seafloor. It provides water depths, locations of dangers to navigation, locations and characteristics of aids to navigation, anchorages, and other features.
A well-equipped and spacious chart room provides all facilities for twenty number of students to be trained for celestial and coastal navigation at a session. The division takes the services of Master mariners to teach chart work for the students.
