Symbols, Terms & Abbreviations Used on Charts
For information on symbols, terms and abbreviations used on nautical charts, LINZ recommends that you refer to the following two publications:
- Chart 5011 (INT 1) Symbols and Abbreviations used on Admiralty Charts, Edition 3, published by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office - available from Trans Pacific Marine
- Karte 1 (INT 1) Symbols, Abbreviations, Terms used on Charts, 7th Edition 2011, published by the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie).
Both of these publications are regularly maintained and contain all the symbols, terms and abbreviations used in New Zealand charts.
Publication NZ 201 (INT 1) Symbols, Terms and Abbreviations Used on Charts has been withdrawn as advised on 15 August 2008 in Notices to Mariners Edition 17 - NZ 162/08. LINZ no longer provides an online PDF version of this publication.
