Cooperative Charting is a public service event where our members get on-the-water, survey a set list of aids to navigation, then record and report our findings.
The Cooperative Charting Program of the United States Power Squadrons is conducted in close cooperation with United States Army Corps of Engineers, the United States Coast Guard and NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey Division (NGSD). The Program continues to be a major public service of America’s Boating Club Houston. As in the past, our members supply important information to the above agencies so updates can be made to nautical charts and the National Survey Marker databases.
It is a good day on and around the water; a great public service event, and a wonderful teaching aid to new boaters. We will need several powerboats, a few participants with a cell phone camera and the Solocator application loaded, and help recording the condition of the aids to navigation we survey. The Houston Squadron is responsible for two areas around Clear Lake and the Houston Ship Channel. It is a great way to see navigation aids up close!
If you are interested, please sign up. It’s free! The Cooperative Charting Chair of the Houston Squadron will work with all the volunteers on assignment areas and the basic education for doing the survey effectively and safely. This is a great event for youth, young adults and new boaters! For more detailed information, please contact our Squadron Executive Officer (Marie Vu) at email@example.com and she will answer your questions or route them to the best person to answer your question.
