NOAA issues new nautical chart for the Port of Palm Beach, Florida

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has issued a new nautical chart for the Port of Palm Beach in Florida.

The large scale nautical chart (No. 11459) was requested by the Palm Beach Harbor Pilots Association to inform navigators of dangers approaching the port and anchoring offshore. The scale offers more detail than previous chart 11466 (1:80,000).

According to NOAA, the larger scale assists more and bigger vessels entering the port to navigate within the turning basin, the surrounding infrastructure and the traffic flow of the Intracoastal Waterway.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issues new nautical chart 11459 for Port of Palm Beach, Florida.

The Palm Beach Pilots, the U.S. Coast Guard Sector Miami, Port of Palm Beach (Operations Division), and the Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District, Coast Survey all agreed on the size of the new 1:15,000 scale chart and a 1:5,000 scale inset.

NOAA reported that the National Geodetic Survey’s Remote Sensing Division collected additional bathymetric lidar data along the shoreline and Coast Survey’s navigation response team collected hydrographic data in the area just beyond where the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers data ends.
