Read what the the U.S. Power Squadron and the U.S. Coast Guard trust as the definitive authority on electronic navigation, now updated with the latest electronic technologies and methods The Weekend Navigator teaches you how to navigate using today's tools and methods, including the latest technologies such as smart phones. While electronic navigation is here to stay, author Bob Sweet recognizes that they are still based on traditional charts and piloting skills, and he combines the two to pass along to you a solid understanding of all the principles of marine navigation. In addition to its continued ground-breaking instruction for the now-digital process of navigation on board power- and sailboats, Sweet helps you understand recent options for chartplotters, less expensive handheld GPS units, smart phones, and the navigation possibilities presented by phone apps. New to this edition is a section entitled "Ooops," which provides an insightful collection of boating accident tales resulting from common GPS and chartplotters no-nos. Using The Weekend Navigator, you can get on the water right away and learn to navigate in an afternoon with GPS; master chart-and-compass piloting while, not before, he or she departs; plot courses and fix positions on paper or electronic charts; and more.

Can piloting a boat really be this easy? Traditional navigation with its chart plotting, compass errors, and current vectors requires years to master.

From the National Education Officer of the U.S. Power Squadrons, here is the operator's manual that should come with every boater's GPS receiver or chart plotter. About the Book GPS for Mariners was immediately well received by nautical book buyers because it took the mystery out of what was, in 2003, still a somewhat mysterious black box. Sales of the book have been strong ever since--through the U.S. Power Squadrons and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary as well as through bookstores and marine stores. In the intervening six years, however, GPS has achieved almost universal acceptance. No one needs to be told in detail how the system works or why it is reliable anymore. Boaters today accept GPS as the ultimate navigation tool—they just want to know how to use it. At the same time, even the most basic GPS receivers are much more full-featured now than six years ago. It's hard to find a new GPS receiver--even a handheld unit--that doesn’t have resident charts or maps, for example. And many boaters now buy chart plotters with integral GPS--and the distinction between a GPS receiver and a full-featured chart plotter has become increasingly blurred. About the only thing that hasn't changed is that the manual that comes with a new GPS receiver or chart plotter is as confusing, fragmented, and incomplete as ever, and in all likelihood never even mentions nautical applications because GPS manufacturers cater to the larger nonboating markets. In response to these trends, the second edition of GPS for Mariners will have much less GPS tech-talk and theory--no sense preaching to the converted—and more instead on getting the most out of today’s more advanced and powerful units. And the second edition will be presented in full color to do maximum justice to the many screen shots and electronic chart shots the book will feature, thus faithfully replicating the full-color screens of most of today’s GPS receivers and chart plotters. Revamped coverage and emphasis: Boaters no longer need to be told what GPS is. They just want to know what it will do for them and how to use it. Therefore this new edition eliminates theory and adds brand-new content on the features and capabilities of new GPS receivers and chart plotters. Now in full color: Because marine GPS receivers and chart plotters have made the transition to color displays since the first edition was published, so has the book. The second edition will be printed entirely in color, the better to show the many features of GPS and chart plotters. Distinctive author qualifications: Bob Sweet is not only a successful boating book author but also the National Education Officer of the U.S. Power Squadrons, America's largest non-profit boating organization and boating educator. The manual that should have come with your GPS or chartplotter but didn't. Clear, concise advice on how to install and initialize the unit, how to use its various features, and how to interpret what it tells you. Color screen shots of the displays take the mystery out of interpretation. Learn basic and advanced functions. Use the device for advance route planning as well as en-route navigation. Become an informed GPS buyer as well as an informed GPS user. Learn the ins and outs of navigation software Interface your GPS with a PC, radar, or autopilot.

Authoritative, practical, and hands-on information on reading and relying on electronic and paper nautical charts The classic How to Read a Nautical Chart explains every aspect of electronic and paper nautical charts: how a chart is assembled, how to gauge the accuracy of chart data, how to read charts created by other governments, how to use information such as scale, projection technique and datum that every chart contains; how not to get fooled or run aground by overzooming. Nigel Calder teaches you how to squeeze every ounce of information out of a nautical chart (on your GPS, chartplotter, or nav station) and understand the limits of accuracy for all charts, paper and electronic, raster and vector. This much-awaited second edition addresses the changes in the world of electronic charting, integrated onboard navigation systems, as well as radar overlays and AIS and their interfacing with charts. A new chapter on the Wiki Revolution explores the mechanisms allowing you to incorporate user-generated content into navigational products and share this content with others—harnessing a user-base never before possible. Calder also explores how 3D-technology and real-time depth and weather information is creating interactive charting capacities that are fundamentally changing how we navigate. Calder's unique, practical insights will help you to navigate safely for years to come.

Research is such an important subject for information professionals that there will always be a need for effective guides to it. Research skills are a prerequisite for those who want to work successfully in information environments, an essential set of tools which enable information workers to become information professionals. This book focuses on producing critical consumers of research. It also goes some way towards producing researchers in the fields of information management and systems. The first edition of this book was enthusiastically received by researchers, students and information professionals in Australia and beyond. Reviews of the first edition considered it a “a worthwhile addition to any information professional’s or research student’s reference shelf (Archives & Manuscripts). This new edition has an additional chapter on ethics, to address the importance of the ethical implications of research. It also has (as did the first edition) two unique characteristics: it is Australian-focused, distinctive among research texts for information professionals; and it has a multi-disciplinary focus, with its authors being drawn from information management (librarianship, archives and recordkeeping) and information systems. The numerous examples throughout the book are drawn from these multiple disciplines. The first edition of this book was road-tested with students from several disciplines who are studying in several universities. Its Introduction noted that "In research terms, the content have been refereed and found to be authoritative!" To this can be added the many satisfied users of the first edition.
