U.S. Bathymetric & Fishing Maps

NCEI is the official distribution point for NOS bathymetric maps, bathymetric/fishing maps, regional maps, geophysical maps, and preliminary maps.

Paper Maps:

NCEI does not have paper copies of all maps, some are out of print. All maps are available digitally.

Contact us to see if a paper copy is in stock, or if it must be custom printed. If not in stock, either download the full resolution to print on a large-format printer at a commercial location, or NCEI can print a copy for you at our office. NCEI's printer currently uses water soluble inks and the cost is significantly higher than for paper maps that are in stock.

Digital Maps:

Use the interactive map. Map previews in .pdf, and full-size compressed .TIFF images are available for free download, or from a list of maps.

The NOS bathymetric and fishing maps are available as scanned images on a series of CD-ROMs, available through the Online store, or an order form can be printed from the interactive interface for selected maps that can be emailed to us, or printed and faxed.
