ABSTRACT: Route planning is one of the core functionalities of modern navigational systems also in inland waters. There is a possibility of at least partial automation of this process with the use of graph searching algorithms. Main problem here is to create a graph based on nautical spatial data. The paper presents research on examining dif-ferent graph searching methods for inland waters. The concept of using combined approach for vector and ras-ter data is given, followed by research results for raster data.
