MyNOAACharts is a tablet application that allows users to download NOAA nautical charts and current editions of the U.S. Coast Pilot. MyNOAACharts utilizes your device's GPS capabilities, letting users display their position on a NOAA nautical chart. You can zoom in any specific location with a touch of the finger, or zoom out for the big picture to plan your day of sailing. The Coast Pilot has some geo-referenced items and provides links to the chart, and to appropriate federal regulations.
Many users submitted feedback and suggestions during the beta test for MyNOAACharts, and Coast Survey has updated the application based on some of the suggestions. The app will remain available in the Google Play™ Store. As we explore options for expanding this application, we encourage comments from users. In addition to suggestions for improving the app, we appreciate being alerted to navigational issues, hazards, and chart discrepancies.
