What is the difference between plane sailing and Mercator sailing?

* It is similar to plane sailing except that plane sailing is used for small distance. * In mercator sailing the d’lat is expressed in longitudinal units, which is the difference of meridianal parts. * In plane sailing the d’long is expressed in latitude units or Nautical miles.
