Production of Nautical Publications

Definition of Nautical Publications

Defined as published materials pursuant to Article 2, No. 14 of Act on Land Survey, Waterway Survey and Cadastral Records, nautical publications are intended to provid mariners with diverse information on matters not sufficiently provided by nautical charts. That is, these publications are made up of ocean passage pilots covering the navigation of vessels and information for port entry and departure, tide tables showing tide prediction and heights of sea levels, light buoys and nautical almanacs containing every beacon, tidal current charts, distance tables, and more.

Current Publications and Future Plans

We at KHOA now publish and distribute 50 types of nautical publications. We are developing electronic nautical publication systems in order to use them in association with other navigational equipment such as the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS).

* For details on the content, distributors and prices for each publication, please see the price list available on One-Click Integrated Marine Information > Nautical Publications > Nautical Publications Price List.
