Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 229 / Friday, November 28, 2014 / Notices chart printing agents through the NOAA ‘‘print-on-demand’’ program. Questions remain on whether to transition the catalogs to a similar ‘‘print-on-demand’’ system where customers would pay for the catalogs. Dated: November 14, 2014. Rear Admiral Gerd Glang, Director, Office of Coast Survey, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. 2. Current Status of the Chart Catalogs BILLING CODE 3510–JE–P Coast Survey now makes letter-sized ‘‘print-at-home’’ PDF chart catalogs available for download, free, at www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/catalog. Produced with digital technology, the catalogs are easy-to-see, easy-to-use, easy-to-print, and are updated as changes occur. The new format has a higher resolution and more geographic names than the large-format catalog, and heavily trafficked waterways covered by multiple charts have their own dedicated pages. If users prefer a Web-based search for charts, they can use the interactive catalog that Coast Survey established in early 2014. The interactive catalog is at www.charts.noaa.gov/ InteractiveCatalog/nrnc.shtml, or it can be accessed from the Coast Survey home page at nauticalcharts.noaa.gov. Coast Survey has stopped updating and producing the large-format chart catalogs since the federal government is no longer printing them. We will archive the latest versions in Coast Survey’s Historical Map & Chart Collection (nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/ history). We could re-start the updating process if there is a market demand and if commercial printing firms decided to carry the catalogs as for-sale products. The updated chart catalogs would only have the front side showing the areas covered by the catalog, with chart outlines and their corresponding chart numbers. They would not show anything on the reverse side. (The Coast Survey Web site nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/staff/print_ agents.html now carries regularly updated information about NOAAcertified chart printers.) tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 3. Public Comments The director of NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey invites interested parties to submit comments to assist Coast Survey as it decides whether to maintain the one-sided large-format (35 inch by 55 inch) chart catalogs that could be made available for purchase from commercial providers, subject to their decision about whether to carry the product. Comments about the new letter-sized PDF catalogs and the interactive Web catalog are also welcome. Authority: 33 U.S.C. Chapter 17, Coast and Geodetic Survey Act of 1947.
