Survey on the use of paper and electronic charts in U.S. waters

We have contacted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and they have advised us that this chart survey is being conducted under a contract that they have awarded. The survey is designed to gather information about the use of paper and electronic charts on commercial vessels operating in U.S. waters, and about commercial chart users’ preferences regarding the format and content of paper and digital charts. 

Whilst appreciating the burden the survey places upon members we would encourage you to complete and return the survey as requested, as this will give an opportunity to air and share concerns and comments, which will be reviewed by NOAA accordingly. Click here for a covering letter and background information and click here for the survey form. Members should print the survey form and return it to Dr Hauke at hauke@whoi.edu or by fax to USA 508-289-2938. 

Note: The completed survey forms should NOT be returned to INTERTANKO.
