Definitions of Vector chart letters

Does anyone know of a list that defines the Vector chart descriptions?

Example; BOYLAT is a Lateral Buoy.

I need a list of all the abbreviations and there meaning.

Thanks.

Look in Opencpn's Help. under Vector charts.

There is no specific "help" tab on OpenCpn's page.

The Vector Charts link; Vector Charts | Official OpenCPN Homepage

...provides nothing in finding a list of definitions of the Categories I'm looking for. The link above is also local on my machine with the same text.

Anyone else?

You can look them up (painfully) here:

IHO S-57 / ENC - Object and Attribute Catalogue

and here:

CARIS S-57 ENC Object Catalogue

The list (also painful) is here:

Seems like the S-57 standards group keeps that pretty hidden unless you want to pay.

Thanks.

The last link I posted goes to the same PDF, just not the best compiled list I've ever seen.

Re: Definitions of Vector chart letters

if you just want a simple list, google for a few of the terms and you'll narrow the search down to sites like this: EncX - Support Site
