The Arctic magnetic pole does not move anymore. It runs, faster and faster. In recent years, even faster than expected. Therefore, geo-researchers have now had an unscheduled change to their world model and adjust their calculations, so that navigation with compass and other navigation aids such as a Pilot Plug, used by pilots around the world, continue to work.

Specialized training for maritime pilots
Quebec City, Quebec, Canada – June 23, 2020 – The Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre (MSRC), a world-class pilot simulation training and port feasibility studies facility, is pleased to announce the release of an informational video on the new S-102 standards on surface bathymetry products.
In the video, Captain Pascal Rhéaume, pilot and member of the technical committee for the Corporation of Lower St-Lawrence Pilots, an active stakeholder involved in the project, introduces the progress made on the development of the S-102 standards. He presents a brief history of navigational charts and explains how technology has allowed these charts to evolve concurrently with the maritime industry as a whole. Captain Rhéaume highlights the groundbreaking benefits of these new standards and how they can greatly improve navigational safety for all seafarers across the globe.
As mentioned in a previous joint press release on November 5, 2019, the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) wishes to promote the implementation of the new S-100 standards to provide mariners with access to additional information (bathymetry, surface currents and water levels) and greater versatility in the display of these data. CHS took advantage of World Hydrography Day to present the work conducted in relation to the S-102 standards and to broadcast Captain Rhéaume’s video.
