Labeling the DR Plot
The symbol for a DR position is a small semicircle around a small dot
on a straight segment of a course line (fig. 8-5); it will be more or less
than a semicircle when plotted at a change in direction. The letters DR
are not used. Time, to the nearest minute, stated in the 24-hour system
as a 4-digit number is written nearby. All symbols for labeling positions
are also shown.
