New Miami chart released

ADVERTISEMENT

NOAA has released the 44th edition of Miami Harbor nautical chart 11468 designed to help alleviate congestion at the Port of Miami — the world’s busiest cruise port — by giving ship pilots a better display of the approach.

 

The previous chart showed only half of the precautionary area where vessels gather before coming into port.

 

The new edition also includes updated depth measurements gathered in February by a NOAA vessel that conducted a fast-paced hydrographic survey of 64 square nautical miles. Its survey also found four underwater obstructions and a wreck in the shipping channels, which were added to the new edition.

 

Chart 11468 – Miami Harbor is now available as a paper print-on-demand nautical chart, as a free PDF digital download, and as a free raster navigational chart for electronic display systems. It is also the last chart that the federal government will print using traditional lithographic printers. The corresponding electronic navigational chart US5FL22 will be available for download in early May.
