The organization holds an extensive portfolio of over three hundred traditional charts, two hundred Electronic Nautical Charts (ENC), and over two hundred and fifty recreational marine charts. Its work involves nautical and oceanographic studies, testing of instruments for Military and Merchant Navy units, renewing national nautical charts, and updating current nautical documentation.
