NP 5011. SYMBOLS AND ABBREVIATIONS USED ON ADMIRALTY CHARTS.Edition 7, 2018.
This publication is based on the "Chart Specifications of the IHO" (International Hydrographic Organization) adopted in 1982, with later additions and corrections. The layout and numbering accords with the official IHO version of Chart INT 1 (English produced by Germany).
It is primarily a key to symbols and abbreviations used on Admiralty and International Charts complied by the UKHO (United Kingdom Hydrographic Office). Variations may occur on charts adopted into the Admiralty Series that were originally produced by another hydrographic office. Where these symbols and abbreviations are easily understood they will not be included as examples in this publication.
Since the NZ 201 is out of print, this is the perfect substitute which will enable you to read and understand a nautical chart.

There are three types: the type illustrated specialises in showing offshore contours of formations. Another type specialises in showing sea-bed composition and a third shows New Zealand lakes.
