UO Map & Aerial Photography Library Nautical Chart Collection
How to Find Charts and Read the Guides
The University of Oregon Libraries Map Collection houses three collections of NOAA nautical charts.
- Current: the most recent charts for the Western U.S. and a large selection of international charts.
- Superseded Series: prior editions of charts covering primarily Oregon, Washington, and California.
- Historic Charts: domestic charts of historic value, most printed prior to 1900. NOAA has created electronic copies of many superseded and historic charts.
