ContentsPaper Chart Symbols:
INT — The international or “INT” symbols specified in the Regulations for International (INT) Charts and Chart Specifications of the IHO (International Hydrographic Organization). These symbols are used by many countries around the world, including the United States.
NOAA — Symbols used on charts produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) when an INT symbol is not used.
NOAA produces nautical charts for all U.S. waters, including the Great Lakes and U.S. Territories.
NGA — Symbols used on charts produced by the National Geospatial- Intelligence Agency (NGA) when an INT symbol is not used. NGA produces nautical charts for the U.S. military and for areas outside of U.S. waters.
ECDIS — Symbols used to portray ENCs on ECDIS navigation systems. Use of ECDIS is required for large commercial ships on international voyages. These symbols are specified in IHO Specifications for Chart Content and Display Aspects of ECDIS.
