    • This edition of U.S. Chart No. 1 has a new name and a new look
    • It's title is now Symbols, Abbreviations and Terms used on Paper and Electronic Navigational Charts
    • For the first time, U.S. Chart No. 1 presents both of the major symbology sets used for marine navigation
    • As in previous editions, the symbols used on paper nautical charts produced by NOAA and the NGA and digital raster representations of those charts, such as NOAA Raster Nautical Chart (NOAA RNC's), are presented in lettered sections organized in categories, such as Landmarks, Depths, and Lights
    • New in this edition is the inclusion of the corresponding symbols used to portray Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC) data on Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) as specified by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO)
    • Mariners have had a standard guide for understanding the symbols, abbreviations and terms used on paper nautical charts for the 65 years, since the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey issued the first edition of U.S. Chart No.1 in 1948
    • In a major step forward, the 12th Edition of that guide also describes the symbols specified by the International Hydrographic Organization for the display of electronic navigational charts (ENC) on Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS)
    • Several maritime nations produce their own versions of Chart 1. The U.S. Chart No. 1 describes the symbols used on paper nautical charts produced by NOAA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
    • The new U.S. Chart No. 1 is the first “Chart 1 produced by any country to show paper and electronic chart symbology side by side
    • U.S. Chart No. 1: Symbols, Abbreviations and Terms used on Paper and Electronic Navigational Charts , produced jointly by NOAA and NGA, is actually more like a book than a chart
    • The 129-page Edition 12 supersedes all previous editions
