Is there a chart key/legend?

We use standard chart symbols to help users navigate the seas safely. These symbols are internationally recognized and used by mariners around the world. They are designed to convey important information about hazards, landmarks, and other features of the sea, such as the location of buoys, rocks, and other underwater obstacles.

While the use of standard chart symbols is essential for safe navigation, it can also be challenging for some users to understand their meaning. That's why savvy navvy provides a comprehensive legend on its website, which explains the meaning of each symbol used in the software.

The legend can be accessed at and is an extremely valuable tool for users who are new to navigation or who need to refresh their knowledge of chart symbols. It is also useful for experienced mariners who may be unfamiliar with certain symbols used in the software.

The legend includes detailed descriptions of each symbol, along with illustrations and examples of how they are used in navigation.
