How the Charts and Publications Tracking Subscription System Works

In consultation with the ship's officers, Maryland Nautical Sales assembles an inventory of charts and publications onboard the vessel which is then entered into our tracking database. Each time MNS is advised of an edition change by a publisher or hydrographic department, this information produces a report that updates requirements for the particular subscriber.

Customer May Arrange:
1. to be notified of availability and provide USA with instructions.
2. to automatically receive the materials upon availability.
3. to have the items collected and dispatched periodically.

Initially an inspection on each vessel will be required to ascertain the current inventory of all on-board editions of all charts and publications. This inspection can be obtained by the vessels crew or staff from Maryland Nautical can visit the vessel if it is close to our offices.


On completion of the inspection an inventory will be input into the Turbo Trac database and compared to an up-to-date database of charts and publications. A report will be generated indicating all out of date charts and publications including all corrections for British Admiralty charts for the latest chart edition. This report may be produced at any time to give the latest editions for any given vessels inventory.


At intervals determined by the ships crew or office, updates of all new editions of charts and publications will be forwarded to the vessel. This may be when the vessel is visiting certain ports or forwarding to offices at regular intervals.
