Admiralty Digital Charts - ARCS

Due to the complexity of electronic charts and the huge variety of options available to you, it is much easier for us to discuss your requirements with you and obtain the best possible deal for your Electronic Chart System.

Therefore please contact a member of the DG Maritime staff on

+44 (0) 1243 511084 or with your requirements.

 Please note: When selecting any digital product to the shopping cart, the person placing the order accepts the fact that once an order is placed, it cannot be refunded as licences are issued by the UKHO on a non-refundable basis.

Admiralty Raster Chart Service is the UKHO’s paper chart portfolio presented in a digital format. Over 3000 charts provide extensive, official coverage of international commercial shipping routes, 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.
