Government to stop printing nautical charts in 2014

Friday, November 01, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

The Inquirer and Mirror - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Coast Survey, which creates and maintains the nation’s suite of a thousand nautical charts of U.S. coastal waters, this week announced major changes ahead for mariners and others who use nautical charts. Starting April 13, 2014, the federal government will no longer print traditional lithographic (paper) nautical charts.

"Like most other mariners, I grew up on NOAA lithographic charts, and have used them for years," said Rear Admiral Gerd Glang, director of NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey.

This certainly is a down right shame and utter travesty.

Federal government has plenty of funds for useless pork barrel crap.

This is taking things way too far. More ink off paper.

Pitiful.
