Defense Mapping Agency charts (now known as National Imagery and Mapping Agency or NIMA charts) are U.S. government charts of waters other than the territories and possessions of the U.S. (see NOAA charts for coverage of U.S. territories). These charts provide excellent worldwide coverage of the world's oceans and coastlines and are updated regularly.
