ADMIRALTY is the single most authoritative source for chart data used by the various digital navigation brands. It also publishes ADPs (ADMIRALTY Digital Publications) which are mandatory on all commercial ships.
For over 220 years, UKHO has been producing charts and publications for the safe navigation of ships, crew and cargo. ADMIRALTY’s impressive portfolio of maritime data can be found on board 90% of ships trading internationally.
Maritime navigation today is primarily digital and UKHO provides one of the widest ranges of charts, publications and electronic services to meet the ever-changing needs of mariners.
Using state-of-the-art technology, the institute keeps its data constantly up-to-date; for example, by analysing billions of points it is able to monitor global maritime traffic, and by sampling constant tidal observations it can make highly accurate future predictions.
