NOAA Says No More Paper Maps Of U.S. Waterways

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will no longer print traditional lithographic charts of U.S. waters after next April. The agency will still map waterways for rocks, shipwrecks and dangers, but mariners will have to download the latest information onto their electronic navigational systems or use private on-demand printing and PDFs.
