Maps and Atlases
Prior to 2009, NCSU Libraries received both U.S. and international nautical and navigation charts. These charts were collected for reference and research purposes and are not meant to be used for navigation. We are currently still holding our collection of these maps, but in 2009 we decided to no longer receive and update the collection with new maps.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
The maps collection has complete coverage for U.S. Atlantic and Gulf Coast nautical charts, small craft charts and intracoastal waterway charts. You may also find online charts or maps at the NOAA Office of Coast Survey.
Access and Location: Satellite Shelving Facility holds NOAA charts and maps. Index sheets for all maps are in the first drawer at the beginning of the collection.
National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) / DMA / NIMA
In the maps collection you will find international nautical and aeronautical charts that have been distributed to depository libraries. These maps have been supplied by the Defense Mapping Agency, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
Access and Location: Satellite Shelving Facility has a section for NGA/DMA/NIMA charts and maps. Index sheets for these maps are in the first drawer at the beginning of each collection.
