Remarks : When the vertical datum is unknown, such as water areas above locks, the value 'local datum' is to be used, and further details may be encoded using 'INFORM'. The +0.3m approximation quoted in the 'approximate' levels is somehow arbitrary and follows the British example of their definition for 'approximate LAT'.
