After a nine-month hiatus, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency charts are available again at Landfall, a leading offshore outfitter and safety expert.

"Over the last few years, OceanGrafix has revolutionized the chart industry, using POD [print-on-demand] technology to provide mariners with the most up-to-date charts possible, but until now, they only offered NOAA products," Capt. Henry Marx, president and founder of Landfall, said in a statement.

"Because of the delay implementing the POD service with NGA charts, for the last year if you wanted a chart of Bermuda or Gibraltar we had to sell you a British Admiralty chart at more than twice the price," he added. "Now that we have NGA charts available again, we can pass the savings to our customers."
