In accordance with the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 640 dated 12 June 1996 “On the approval of the list of inland waterways that belong to the category of navigable waterways”, and aimed at improving navigation on inland waterways of Ukraine (in particular the Pivdennyi Buh River) by introducing modern electronic navigational aids, this year the State Hydrographic Service of Ukraine develops electronic river navigational charts (ERNC) of the Pivdennyi Buh River from Voznesensk to Mykolaiv.

Development and application of such charts will enable:

  • to develop modern cartographic product in the world coordinate system WGS-84 based on international and national cartographic standards and comprehensive hydrographic works carried out in 2012;
  • to provide Ukrainian inland waterways with extra coverage of high-accuracy electronic data till 2015;
  • to provide navigators interested in modern navigation methods with extra information in the form of cartographic product for chartplotters.

The quarterly «Journal of State Hydrographic Service of Ukraine» acquaints the readers with achievements of national hydrography.




The technology «Print-on-Demand» had been implemented for constantly keeping national portfolio up-to-date and satisfying demands of customers.

Full coverage with electronic and paper navigational charts for the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov is provided.


Attention! We offer previously edited nautical charts fallen out of navigational use in order to provide students with national cartographic materials as demonstration aids.
