A method of communication of hydrographic information is presented. Based on the DMAHTC Chart No. 1, a controlled vocabulary is used to create an algorithm by which information can be transferred in a language-independent, computer-compatible code. Using a specific nautical chart, a controlled vocabulary and this coding algorithm as parameters, a method is presented by which all members of the hydrographic community can share vital information such as Notice to Mariners, in a common format without the limitations imposed by a multiplicity of languages and chart formats.
