Online NOAA Charts

The following site NOAA provides seemlessly tiled NOAA charts with a background satellite/aerial map. It seems to be a Google product, but the web domain name doesn't give any clue.

Does anyone know who is sponsoring this product and will it continue to do so. I love it and wouldn't want it to go away.

Geogarage apparently is a product of a French company

Magic Instinct Software

that uses the free NOAA charts and GoogleEarth to produce their rather intriguing product. I used it recently for planning a passage from St Thomas to the Tampa Bay area. Very nifty for route planning and just generally messing around to satisfy your curiosity.
