En Route

En Route is a web-based tool to solve the two problems of rhumb line navigation, namely the determination of the course and distance and the determination of the final position. More broadly, it is aimed at helping the promotion of nautical culture and at familiarizing with basic nautical concepts.

In order to be clean, usable and understandable, its interface is designed to give you a complete control of all the available functions. Likewise, to give you more flexibility, various coordinates and course formats can be used. Examples of them, along with other tips, can be found in the Help page.
