Marine maps

Marine Maps

  • Maps can be viewed on screen or printed/downloaded at A4.

  • Source data - maps are created from scanned Admiralty Chart images, covering the UK and the surrounding seas.

  • The maps are grouped into 6 scale bands; ocean, sea, general, coastal, approaches and harbour (roughly equivalent to the usage bands of Admiralty Charts).

  • Each scale band features a different set of Admiralty Charts, with features most relevant to the scale. The scanned images are used to build up a mosaic of maps for each scale band.

  • Scales vary from 1:3.5million to 1:2,500.

  • These make ideal backdrop maps, but must NOT be used for navigation.

Scale usage bands

Scale/Usage bands

  • Ocean - small scale ( 1:3,500,000 to 1:750,000)

  • Sea - small scale (> 1:750,000 to 1:300,000)

  • General - small to mid scale (1:200,000 to 1:100,000)

  • Coastal - mid scale ( 1:100,000 to 1:50,000)

  • Approaches - mid to large scale ( 1:50,000 to 1:15,000)

  • Harbour - large scale ( 1:25,000 to 1:2,500)

Marine maps1

Marine Maps

  • Source maps may be at different scales.

  • In Marine, maps are viewed at same scale so you may find some differences in detail in adjacent areas.

Marine Maps home page

  • Use the drop down menu to view areas covered by different usage bands.

  • To search, enter details in a search box or click on the map to go to your area of interest.

Location map

Location Map

  • Shows the wider area around your current area (red square).

  • Allows you to select and view the coverage of other usage bands, in that area.

  • Can pan around the location map by clicking and dragging the red square.

Different map views

Different map views

  • Switch views by clicking on the icons above the map

  • Zoom in and out of that view, using the bar to the left of the map



  • The legend shows the more commonly found symbols on Marine Maps

  • More detailed information available from the Marine Lexicon

Map chest

Map Chest

  • Maps can be saved in Map Chest

  • Unique to each user

  • Maps erased after 5 days

  • Print from Map Chest as:

    • PNG format

    • A4

  • Uses Hydrospatial Vector data (launched in 2005):

  • Data has 6 topic layers, each layer further broken down into themes.

  • ‘SeaZone Hydrospatial is in its infancy and is under continual development and improvement both in form, content and structure. Initially, much of the information that SeaZone Hydrospatial contains is re-engineered from data captured by UKHO from paper charts for the production of ENCs (Electronic Navigational Charts). Increasingly though, more will be based on improved source data sets (e.g. wrecks) and on totally new data sets (e.g. detailed bathymetry from digital surveys) that depict the real world environment and provide key base reference information to be established.’

Charted raster data

Charted Raster data

  • Used in the Marine Maps facility.

  • Scanned Admiralty Charts covering the UK and the surrounding seas from 1:3.5million to 1:2,500.

  • The data is supplied as GeoTiff images, ready for use in a GIS.

  • Each map has its own projection, referenced to the Horizontal WGS84 Datum.

  • These data make ideal backdrop maps, but must NOT be used for navigation

Step 1 search for location

Step 1: Search for location

  • Select the Scale bands of interest

    • use the coverage map to see which bands are available for your area

    • bands deselected can be added back in when choosing maps

  • Search using one of the options

  • Select your location from the list of results, if applicable

Step 2 select maps

Step 2: Select maps

  • Choose the maps you want from the list or click on the map

  • Use the zoom and scale bands to see larger or smaller maps in the area

  • Click Continue

Step 3 make settings

Step 3: Make settings

  • Option to take other sections of Multiple part maps

  • Previews of all maps available

  • Archiving and compression

  • Extra box to tick to confirm you are aware that charts are NOT for navigation

  • Click Extract Data

Step 4 downloading

Step 4: Downloading

  • Click the link to go to the download page

  • Use your browser's ‘Save link as..’ or ‘Save target as..’ option

    • MapInfo Tab

  • The data is collected at various scales, the best available for each source.

  • As vector data it is scale free when displayed.

  • The data is projected in WGS84 not British National Grid.

Onward use of data in arcgis

Onward use of data in ArcGIS

Hydrospatial data:

  • Older versions of ArcGIS not supported. Can’t guarantee data will work in ArcView 3.x

  • Shape files, no need to convert

  • All of the files provided with Shape files must be kept in the same folder

  • For correct data display, need to download and install 2 folders:



    • both available in Help > Using data with ArcGIS
