Noaa charts...

Is there a list, such as a pdf file, where you can look up and decipher the chart numbers that they show on the NOAA website?

Re: Noaa charts...

You can use the online chart viewer.

NOAA's On-Line Chart Viewer

Just select your region. The chart column link may be more user friendly.

Yes I found that, but it seems awkward and slow to use.

I want to download the mass of them which seem to be identified in numbers and use an index of the numbers to suck them up into my mapping program.
