Coastal Navigation

Although named Coastal Navigation, the instruments shown here were not solely used for that purpose. Before the advent of electronics, the station pointers shown here, were also used for positioning at coastal engineering and hydrographic projects.

Currently the collection houses two station pointers: one by Warren Knight and one by Kelvin Hughes.

If you have any questions and/or remarks please let me know.
