A drift chart was a computer-based simulation of all movements of various bodies that occupied an asteroid field. Using a sophisticated algorithm to monitor and predict the locations of the asteroids, it allow starships to navigate the field safely. The chart was best used in a sparsely occupied field; when a field had many obstacles, the chart's computer could not keep up.
