NOAA’s new BookletCharts are free, downloadable nautical charts that cover the 95,000 miles of U.S. coastline and the Great Lakes. BookletCharts contain most of the information found on NOAA’s full-scale nautical charts, but it is presented as reduced-scale.

Coast Survey has now moved the BookletCharts from experimental stage into official production. Nearly a thousand newly updated BookletCharts are available free on the web.

While BookletCharts are great for recreational use, they do not fulfill chart carriage requirements for regulated commercial vessels under Titles 33 and 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations
