Abstract [en]

This paper compares two different forms of representations that communicate geographic information to the mariner: the sailing direction and the chart. The sailing direction with its narrative, sequential, description of the world from a natural, surface, perspective, and the chart with its static and synthetic bird’s eye view of the world. Both are historically examples of successful mediated communication. Today they may become the starting point of new types of dynamic, virtual reality media, helping the mariner to safer navigation.
