Digipilot is an official Digital Nautical Publication, developed and issued by the Hydrographer of the Royal Netherlands Navy. Digipilot provides the mariner with the necessary information to plan his voyage in an interactive and versatile manner.
It contains Sailing Directions and supplementary Port Information in various interactive geographic and thematic layers, but also tidal information, Deep Draught Planning Guide (Greenwich Buoy to Europoort) and the Mariners Routeing Guide for the Southern North Sea. The product covers the Netherlands and Belgian coasts including the main inland waterways up to and including the ports of Antwerpen (Belgium) and Emden (Germany).
The content of this publication has been derived from traditional existing paper nautical publications issued by the Hydrographer of the Royal Netherlands Navy and contains data derived from additional sources.
Digipilot is an official equivalent of paper publications HP1 (Netherlands Coast Pilot) and HP33 (tide tables and stream atlases) in accordance with SOLAS V2.2 and SOLAS V126.96.36.199. It may replace these traditional paper publications provided that appropriate back-up arrangements are available (for example print facility or 2nd installed program).
