At first glance what we are about to link you to doesn't seem very maritime in character. But we consider cartography very much a nautical professional endeavor. Henry the Navigator turned it into a science. It occupies a great deal of the effort of the NOAA Corps, a uniformed naval service we have introduced you to on occasion.
