And While We’re Talking Digital – How About Digital Charts!

Home | Uncategorized | And While We’re Talking Digital – How About Digital Charts!

A new NOAA raster chart in digital format, called Fugawi Aboard, combines more than 2,000 NOAA charts and 600 Canadian raster charts into quilted regions for use on compatible chart plotters.

The result is coastline detail for the US and Canada with the look and feel of vector charts as well as the detail of paper charts – but that behaves like any other electronic charts with the ability for users to zoom and pan.

This digital cartography brings electronic paper charts to chart plotters everywhere. A downloadable version is available at: http://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/mcd/raster/.
