OceanGrafix to Print NOAAs New On-demand Coast Pilot Series
St. Paul, Minn. (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
OceanGrafix, the exclusive provider of NOAA print-on- demand (POD) nautical charts for U.S. waters, today announced they are an approved POD printer and distributor of NOAAs on-demand U.S. Coast Pilot series. In conjunction with NOAAs new process of making weekly online updates to the U.S. Coast Pilot books, OceanGrafix will print the books that reflect all updates and corrections.
NOAA is making fundamental improvements in our publishing processes so our commercial partners, like OceanGrafix, can make the U.S. Coast Pilot available to mariners as quickly as possible, says Kathryn Ries, NOAA Coast Surveys acting director.
Traditionally, users would order printed updates to insert into their book, or wait for the next edition to be printed and released. The series consists of nine volumes covering different waterways of the U.S. and U.S. territories. Each contains navigational information to supplement nautical charts.
