NOAA recently released a new interactive chart locator that allows users to find their nautical charts in multiple formats.  This vastly improves the process for searching for and obtaining nautical charts. Whether downloading one of the new PDF nautical charts, selecting a chart to order from a "print-on-demand" vendor, or finding an electronic chart, the interactive catalog presents a highly integrated suite of navigation products for immediate use.

Users can pick a spot on a map or enter a search term and have instant access to information (like chart numbers, scales, and notices to mariners) and to several charting products. The interactive catalog is NOAA Office Coast Survey's latest innovation in making navigational information more accessible to all maritime professionals and recreational boaters.
