Grid Coordinates and Maps

Guide

  • Each NAFO Division is divided into soft-shell monitoring grids.
  • The coordinates for the four (4) corners of each grid are identified by referencing the X and Y axis on the soft-shell grid map for each NAFO Division.
  • The area closed by the soft shell grid is described by lines joining Points 1 to 4 as indicated on the soft-shell charts for each NAFO Division. The points are degrees and minutes of North Latitude and West Longitude.
  • Each NAFO Division has multiple pages. The pages represent the letters and its corresponding coordinates as identified on the soft-shell grid map for each NAFO Division.
