The Marine Chart Division (MCD) at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a division in the Office of Coast Survey (OCS) responsible for the production of navigational products that are used by mariners to navigate safely and efficiently in US waters.
“The needs of the global navigation community are constantly changing, and our charts must adapt to those needs. The COTS system from Esri that we have implemented allows NOAA to continue being the provider of choice for accurate and timely navigation data.”
