In the interest of safe boating, the Department publishes detailed nautical charts of the Western Australian coastline for use by recreational and local commercial vessels.

These WA charts are not intended as meeting any chart carriage requirements under either Australian or International regulations, such as SOLAS V. The Australian Hydrographic Service and the UK Admiralty both publish official charts of Australia that meet these regulations.

Nautical charts are navigational tools, which are vital for all craft. They provide clear, concise information about ocean depths and coastal features as well as displaying accurate information about lights, beacons, piles, nautical limits and all navigational hazards. Mariners should keep their charts up to date by regularly incorporating the relevant Notices to Mariners.

The Department's paper nautical chart series is compiled to specifications based on those of the International Hydrographic Organisation, the worldwide charting standardisation authority, and are printed in full colour onto high quality map paper.

Gloss Laminate

Gloss laminate makes colours look more vibrant and stand out more, but is quite shiny (reflective). If you’re planning on using a marker of any sort, this is a better choice because it’s easier to clean. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Matte Laminate

Matte laminate has a smooth, non-reflective, very classy looking surface. I wouldn’t say it dulls colours, but it doesn’t make them ‘pop’ (I hate that I just used that word) in the way that gloss does. Matte can be drawn on with pencil (and erased), but is harder to clean if you use markers. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Canvas

Everything looks better on canvas! Something about the texture really makes prints look wonderful. It is quite expensive though. We use a very high quality 340gsm artistic matte canvas. Your canvas print will come rolled with a roughly 50mm white border to allow you to have it stretched or mounted however you wish.
