Nautical Charts Digital Collection

The initial phase of the Chatham Nautical Charts Initiative has been completed, and this new and important way to view Nautical Charts from the Museum’s collection is now available. With support from a grant awarded by the Town of Chatham through its Community Preservation Committee, 40 of the approximately 130 charts in the Museum’s Nautical Charts collection have been professionally restored and digitally imaged. The imaging was done by the Digital Commonwealth operating in facilities located in the Boston Public Library.

We have added several pages to our website to cover this important collection.

  • The Nautical Charts Virtual Gallery page (click to view) presents the Museum’s Digital Collection of 41 digitized Nautical Charts, with instructions and viewing tips. These are the 40 charts from the Initiative, plus a digital replica of the important Eldridge Upside-Down Chart. Viewing these charts uses a “zoom” technology, whereby one can view the entire chart on the computer screen, and can also zoom in on any small section of a chart to see the full detail of the original chart.
  • The Chatham Nautical Chart Initiative page presents an overview of the project that has resulted in the restoration and digization of 40 charts.
  • The Nautical Charts Collection page describes the Museum’s full collection of 130 physical charts.
