Icelandic Charts & Publications

The Icelandic Hydrographic Service is a department of the Icelandic Coast Guard. The organization was originally established in the 1930´s and is responsible for maintaining charts covering the coast around Iceland and adjacent waters.

Hydrographic surveys are carried out over the summer months by the survey vessel Baldur, and during the winter months, the crew works on the processing of data together with the nautical cartographers. Updated nautical charts are essential for safe navigation, and it is mandatory for all ships to have such charts. The ICG/Hydrographic Department issues a monthly publication of Notices to Mariners with information on amendments that need to be put into the nautical charts. Ocean areas, where surveys are old, are under constant review by the ICG Hydrographic Department
