    Coast Guard updates electronic chart policy
    READ MORE!

    WASHINGTON –The U.S. Coast Guard announced today an update to its navigation guidance for the use of electronic charts in lieu of paper charts and publications.

    The updated version of Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01-16 identifies voluntary acceptable equivalencies to paper charts and publications as well as position fixing and plotting requirements under Coast Guard regulations.

    The NVIC also provides guidance and recommendations to vessel owners and operators and chart display manufacturers.

    “We took into account feedback from agency partners and industry stakeholders to adjust our electronic charts policy,” said Capt. Mary Ellen J. Durley, the chief of the Office of Navigation Systems.

    Mariners are not required to use electronic charts or electronic charting systems. The updated guidance offers a voluntary alternative means to comply with U.S. chart and publication carriage requirements.

    New products and activities for navigation safety…

    The latest news
    We are well into summer and Coast Survey has been busy providing commercial mariners and recreational boaters with top notch navigation products and services. Here are just a few things we have been up to.
    Rear Adm. Shepard M. Smith, director of NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey and the U.S. national representative to the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), was elected as the chair of the newly established IHO Council.
    The council was established in November 2016 as a result of the adoption of amendments to the Convention on the International Hydrographic Organization. It is composed of 30 leading hydrographic nations from the membership of the IHO, and functions much like a corporate board of directors, overseeing performance management and the business side of the IHO.

    NOAA offers new certification program in nautical cartography  
     
    The International Board on Standards and Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors and Nautical Cartographers (IBSC) recognized and approved Coast Survey’s new certification program in cartography (CAT-B) at their 40th meeting in Willington, New Zealand. 
     
    The new program will grant certificates to up to 13 cartographers per year, through a combination of lectures, hands-on chart production experience, work details to various branches within the Coast Survey, and field trips to working hydrographic survey vessels. The first class (which is already full), will begin in fall 2017 at Coast Survey headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. The duration of the program is 51 weeks and comprises six courses.
    NOAA hosts first open house on nautical cartography  
     
    NOAA hosted the first open house on nautical cartography on Friday, July 7th. The event featured posters, presentations, and tours focusing on nautical cartography, highlighting the field of charting and GIS. Industry partners, international mapping groups, government agencies, and many international charting offices were in attendance. The open house welcomed a total of 200 visitors, representing 24 countries.

    This one-day event, held in the Science Center on NOAA’s Silver Spring, MD, campus, was planned in conjunction with with the 28th annual International Cartographic Conference 2017 (ICC) in Washington, D.C. where NOAA also had a presence with an exhibit booth and presentations.

    New commemorative chart marks the Battle of Midway’s 75th anniversary
    Coast Survey and the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries created a commemorative nautical chart for the Battle of Midway’s 75th anniversary. This nautical chart was first published in 1943, and the commemorative chart includes the original depth soundings surrounding the islands overlaid with historical photos from the battle. Read more

    Coast Survey hurricane prep was in full swing before hurricane season started 
     
    Official hurricane season didn’t start until June 1, but Coast Survey’s navigation managers were heavily involved throughout April and May in training exercises with the U.S. Coast Guard, ports authorities, and NOAA’s National Weather Service.
    Why is Coast Survey involved? With our expertise in underwater detection, NOAA navigation response teams and survey ships are often the first ones in the water after a hurricane, looking to make sure that no hidden debris or shoaling poses a danger to navigation.

  • LNM: Naval Exercises Continue, St. Andrews Bay


    Boaters around Panama City and St. Andrews Bay have grown very accustomed to the presence of naval vessels in the area waterways. But just in case, here are three more Local Notices from week 28.

    FL – GULF OF MEXICO – PANAMA CITY BEACH – Naval Operations  READ MORE!

    Commencing July 13, 2017 and continuing until approximately July 20, 2017, the U.S. Navy will conduct test operations in an area approximately 12 nautical miles south-southwest from the mouth of Panama City Pass, Florida. The Navy will be placing moored targets at various depths from the surface that will pose a hazard to navigation. The center point of this target field is in approximate position 30-07-54.6N 085-57-56.0W. The targets will be placed in the water column at various depths from the surface to the bottom. The hazard area will be marked with 6 lighted hazard buoys. The M/V TYSON B will be on-station during the entire time to further ensure and warn vessels of the hazards to navigation. Mariners transiting the area should contact the support vessel via VHF-FM Channel 16, heed all instructions and remain a minimum of 1 nautical mile from vessels on station.
