General

Categorys


Mark Example Symbols seamark:buoy_lateral:category Where used
Port-hand lateral mark Port.png port Marks the port side limit of the fairway when heading inland. This will be towards the right bank.
Starboard-hand lateral mark Starboard.png starboard Marks the starboard side limit of the fairway when heading inland. This will be towards the left bank.
Preferred channel to starboard lateral mark PStarboard.png preferred_channel_starboard Where the fairway divides either way around an obstacle, the primary channel is to the starboard side of this mark.
Preferred channel to port lateral mark PPort.png preferred_channel_port Where the fairway divides either way around an obstacle, the primary channel is to the port side of this mark.
Right-hand side of the waterway RightLateral.png waterway_right Marks the limit of the waterway closest to the right bank.
Left-hand side of the waterway LeftLateral.png waterway_left Marks the limit of the waterway closest to the left bank.
Right-hand side of the channel RightChannel.png channel_right Marks the limit of a channel closest to the right bank.
Left-hand side of the channel LeftChannel.png channel_left Marks the limit of a channel closest to the left bank.
Bifurcation of the waterway WWBifurcation.png waterway_separation Marks the conjunction of two waterways.
Bifurcation of the fairway WWBifurcation.png channel_separation Marks the conjunction of two channels within a waterway.
Turn off at the right-hand side TORight.png turnoff_right Indicates a turn off at the right-hand side.
Turn off at the left-hand side TOLeft.png turnoff_left Indicates a turn off at the left-hand side.
Danger point or obstacles at the right-hand side DRight.png danger_right Marks obstacles close to the right bank.
Danger point or obstacles at the left-hand side DLeft.png danger_left Marks obstacles close to the left bank.
Junction at the right-hand side JRight.png junction_right Indicates a junction at the right-hand side.
Junction at the left-hand side JLeft.png junction_left Indicates a junction at the left-hand side.

Shapes

seamark:buoy_lateral:shape Definition Rendering
conical The upper part of the body above the water-line, or the greater part of the superstructure, has approximately the shape or the appearance of a pointed cone with the point upwards. Buoy Cone.png
can The upper part of the body above the water-line, or the greater part of the superstructure, has the shape of a cylinder, or a truncated cone that approximates to a cylinder, with a flat end uppermost. Buoy Can.png
spherical The upper part of the body above the water-line, or the greater part of the superstructure, has the shape of a part of a sphere. Buoy Sphere.png
pillar The upper part of the body above the water-line, or the greater part of the superstructure is a narrow vertical structure, pillar or lattice tower. Buoy Pillar.png
spar The upper part of the body above the water-line, or the greater part of the superstructure, has the form of a pole, or of a very long cylinder, floating upright. Buoy Spar.png
barrel The upper part of the body above the water-line, or the greater part of the superstructure, has the form of a barrel or cylinder floating horizontally. Buoy Barrel.png
super-buoy A very large buoy, generally more than 5m in diameter. Buoy Super.png

Colour

There are two international buoyage regions, A and B, between which lateral marks differ. The buoyage region is encoded using the separate attribute "system" (MARSYS). Lateral buoys generally have distinctive shapes (can for port-hand, conical for starboard-hand) or may be a pillar or spar with distinctive topmarks. The buoys and their topmarks are always painted in red, green or red & green horizontal bands.
