NOAA to improve chart coverage

ADVERTISEMENT

The United States’ NOAA is drafting a plan to improve nautical chart coverage, products and distribution. The National Charting Plan describes the evolving state of marine navigation and nautical chart production, and outlines actions that will provide the user with a more useful, up-to-date, and safer product with which to navigate.

With more than 15 million recreational boat users in the U.S. and a steady increase in vessel size over the last 30 years, electronic navigational charts (ENC) must keep up and stay as advanced and up to date as possible.

Public comments are welcome through June 1. For information on how to provide written comments, see the Federal Register Notice at www.federalregister.gov, and search for National Charting Plan.
