OceanGrafix begun the beta test phase for remote printing locations of the Charts-on-Demand nautical charts. Using digital print technology, OceanGrafix has begun the testing in Louisiana at two of their chart agent’s locations, McCurnin Nautical and Baker Lyman, with expectations to soon have many remote printing sites throughout the United States. By utilizing the remote printing capability, OceanGrafix is able to further their mission of providing the maritime industry with the most current information in the least amount of time. OceanGrafix, in cooperation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), produces fully corrected and up-to-date nautical charts of all US waterways. Charts are available on water-resistant or laminated paper and can be customized to fit the commercial mariner or recreational boaters needs. “The implementation of this advanced technology permits OceanGrafix’s chart agents to print the up-to-date charts at their location,” says Dave DeGree, President of OceanGrafix. “By selecting McCurnin Nautical and Baker Lyman as our test sites, we continue our policy of providing superior products and services.”
