The Cooperative Charting Program
of the United States Power Squadrons
is conducted in close coordination with
the Marine Chart Division,
National Ocean Service,
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

This Program is a major public service of USPS.

Under it, members supply information to the Marine Chart Division of NOS/NOAA leading to corrections to nautical charts, small craft charts, and Coast Pilot publications.

They also supply data on depth surveys, range status, geodetic marks, and aeronautical charts.

The Adopt-A-Chart subprogram enables individual squadrons to adopt a chart in their location and get recognition on new editions for their work.

We have been told that the Cooperative Charting Program is recognized as the most effective user-participation program in all of the Federal services.
