head-up display

From EngHydroDic

Jump to: navigation, search

In ECDIS information shown on a display in such a fashion so that the vessel’s heading is always pointing upward. This orientation corresponds to the visual view from the bridge in the direction of the ship’s heading. This orientation may require frequent rotations of the display contents. Changing the ship’s course or yawing of the vessel may render this non stabilized orientation mode unreadable. (See course up display)
