SOME IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW
Sunsetting NOAA raster nautical charts has started. What does that mean?
Sunsetting is a term that refers to purposely and systematically phasing out a product or service.
In 2019, NOAA announced its Sunsetting of Raster Nautical Charts. The raster sunset program will gradually end production and maintenance of NOAA traditional paper nautical chart products. Beginning in 2021, NOAA will start canceling its traditional nautical charts. The process is expected to be completed by January 2025.
- NCC charts look different than traditional NOAA charts (see example above).
- The data used to create NCC's is the most up-to-date.
- NCC's do not have numbers, but can encompass the same area as traditional numbered charts and have the same scale and unit of depth measurement.
- We will recreate a chart for you by using the NCC app, or you may create the NCC yourself and upload it for us to print.
NCC's are available from us in FULL SIZED, or SMALL FORMAT and can be printed on Paper or Waterproof materialPlease note: Only one NCC can be ordered and uploaded at a time.
If you wish to order multiple custom charts, please make separate orders for each and we will combine shipping costs and ship your entire order together.
