Chart 1 : Symbols, Abbreviations and Terms
Chart 1 provides explanations of the symbols, terms and abbreviations used in CHS nautical charts.
Chart 1 is a publication containing explanations of the symbols, abbreviations and terms needed to interpret nautical charts published by the Canadian Hydrographic Service. Member nations of the International Hydrographic Organization produce Chart 1 using a common format. That common format consists of sections identified by letters and symbols, abbreviations or terms identified by a reference number. All Chart 1s organize these sections and symbols, abbreviations, or terms in the exact same order.
To view Chart 1, as a PDF document, you must have a PDF reader installed. See help for more information.
- Please be advised that if you intend to print from the PDF the size expands substantially when uncompressed en-route to the printer.
- Note on Printing: Due to the importance of colour in symbology printing in black and white only is strongly discouraged. Colour laser and ink jet printers are recommended.
