The hydrographic department of the Indian Navy has been quietly evolving over centuries, hand in hand with sea travel. While the early sailors navigated their ships, discovering routes by trial and error and documenting their precious information on closely guarded maps, the art of discovering safe routes grew into the highly specialized branch of hydrography.
Lavishly illustrated with maps and photographs, Charting the Deep provides a rich experience for those interested in history and for those with a touch of salt in their veins.
