Navigational Charts

The Office of Coast Survey (OCS) manages the NOAA nautical charting and nautical data collection and information programs.

The Office of Coast Survey is a component of the National Ocean Service which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Coast Survey has a long history as the oldest scientific organization in the United States, having its foundation as far back as 1807. Henry Stellwagen, a Lieutenant with the US Navy was on loan to the Coast Survey when he mapped the entirety of the bank that now bears his name. Today the Office of Coast Survey is known for the useful and necessary navigational products which are required for the safe and efficient maritime commerce in and out of our Nation's ports.

NOAA offers various forms of charts, from electronic to paper, for most of our nation's coastline. This list of chart numbers for traditional charts and charts-on-demand (raster nautical charts) may be of interest to mariners visiting the sanctuary.
