How are nautical charts used in marine navigation?
The nautical chart is a fundamental tool of marine navigation. It shows water depths, obstructions, aids to navigation, channels, shoreline, and more – hopefully all the information mariners need to navigate safely. NOAA’s 1,000-plus U.S. coastal and Great Lakes nautical charts are viewable here on-line.
