Seamless NOAA charts on-line

Just came across CRUISER´S NET which have a lot of good cruising information for the Southern states and Florida.

Nationally,there is also a seamless,zoomable NOAA chart of the entire USA.

Internationally,you have Google Map and Google Earth displays.

You can mouse-click a POI anywhere and read it´s geo loc,which also displays a handy location URL for later use. Here is New York:
Cruiser's Net » Archive » Cruisersnet Marine Map

The navigation information is user-supplied/updated by email to CRUISER´S NET.

Cruiser´s Net & seamless NOAA chart updating

Cruisers Net have a neat,seamless NOAA chart which can be updated/edited by the users,presently only for the Southern US and Florida. You just do a right mouse-click on the location of interest which creates an access URL you can send with your update/edit request to Cruisers Net.

I have made inquiries to find out if editing/updating can also be made available for other popular yachting areas around the world.

Apart from the seamless NOAA charts of the US and Bahamas,there is also the usual Google options.

Really a bit like OpenSeaMap which also allows user editing/updating,but, alas presently without soundings.
