Its shape and size depend on many factors. The available maneuvering area seems to be one of the most important of them. This article examines the influence of the available manoeuvring area on the shape and size of ship domain in the open sea and restricted waters. The research was conducted using a simulation method. Expert navigators participated in simulations using the ECDIS system. The domains of ship passages in open sea area and restricted area have been compared.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.11.01.11}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ship Domain, Open Sea Areas, Restricted Waters, Available Maneuvering Area, Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), Navigational Safety Assessment, Safety at Sea, Simulation Method} }
