Managing the Waterway DVD Set of Charts for US Waters

Raster and Vector Electronic Navigation Charts

2 DVD Set

Semi-local publications, LLC

This is simply a ‘must have’ for anyone who is using Windows PC or Macintosh based Navigation software and who needs to update or augment their digital chart library. Although a complete library may already have come with the software package, and it is not difficult to obtain these same raster and vector charts for free from the NOAA and USACE websites, locating and downloading the charts is indeed a fairly time consuming process. It is also necessary to obtain updated charts on a regular basis, so receiving them all in one package is well worth the purchase price.

The two DVD set contains the complete library of all available Raster and vector charts for both coastal and inland waters. As a bonus it also includes important government publications like Chart 1, the Light lists, and the coastal pilots. For anyone interested in exploring computer navigation, they have even included several trial software packages. Several other compilations are available at prices that reflect area of coverage.

With the availability of reasonably priced PCs, GPS receivers and charting software, as well as waterproof, daylight viewable tablet PCs, this is sure to be a resource many people will avail of. Particularly considering the cost of the alternative: dedicated and costly charting hardware and their proprietary and expensive chart kits.
