Ice chart colour code standard
While the WMO international standard for ice charts only dealt with black and white charts, in keeping with the paper facsimile technology of the time, colour has long been used to help differentiate the various ice conditions on a paper chart. In the last decade, progress in computer processing and communication, as well as increased demands of users prompted the necessity to develop a new WMO International Ice Colour Code Standard for ice charts.
