US wants mariner feedback

ADVERTISEMENT

Following up on the aids to navigation “listening sessions” this summer, the U.S. Coast Guard, Army Corps of Engineers and NOAA have asked mariners to share their thoughts on the future of navigation on the country’s waterways.

 

The agencies have created a questionnaire asking for feedback about how mariners use charts and publications, how they make updates and how important phone apps are in navigation.
