f War Charts Define Seven Seas
Each month more than two million charts roll off the
presses of the United States Hydrographic Office, giving de
tailed, vital data of the harbors and expanses of the seven
seas. As these charts go out to the fleet and to friendly
mariners of the United Nations, U. S. Navy ships are chart
ing new segments of the oceans, new ports of call, new reefs
and channels. Likewise, old and incomplete charts are con
stantly being brought up to date. The chart data obtained by
hydrographic engineers aboard ship are sent to the navy’s
where, under the direc
tion of Rear Admiral G.
S. Bryan, USN, the Hydro
grapher of the Navy, they
are plotted, processed,
printed and distributed.

Once the chart is on zinc, technical workmen see that the design
