The paper presents analytical method of ship's plan geometry (contour) uncertainty area determination. The model was used to determine uncertainty area of ship maneuvering in Swinoujscie harbor for typical configuration of navigational equipment applied in existing pilot systems. The results of experiment were discussed. The model equations were derived from measurement error propagation theory. Potential application of uncertainty area as safety zone around ship contour was appointed.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Marine Navigation, Integrated Navigation System (INS), Manoeuvring, Ship's Contour, Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), Mathematical Model, Ships Positioning, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)} }
