Admirality Raster Chart Service ARCS
ARCS is the UKHO’s paper chart portfolio presented in a digital format. Over 3000 charts provide extensive, main ports and harbours at a comprehensive range of scales. ARCS charts are licensed on a chart by chart basis to give you maximum flexibility – you only have to pay for the charts you need.
All ARCS charts have the same familiar image and use the same internationally recognised symbology as Admiralty paper charts - making them the easy first step from chart table to electronic navigation.
ARCS is fully compatible with a wide range of electronic chart systems (ECS) and with Electronic Chart Display & Information Systems (ECDIS), so you can choose the system that meets your requirements and budget.
