Project Title

Navigation Data Messages Overview Green Book



Document Number



2.02 Navigation Working Group

Document Type


Description of Document

At the time the "Navigation Data -Definitions and Conventions" book was originally written, none of the Navigation Data Messages existed (ADM, ODM, TDM, CDM, etc.). Now, the ADM, ODM, TDM, and CDM have been developed and are in various stages of infusion. This Green Book will provide an overview for a prospective user of the messages developed by the Working Group.
