Special Media

Records of the Coast and Geodetic Survey (Record Group 23)
95 cubic feet ( partial)
This series, H-Chart Descriptive Reports, 1900–81, consists of hydrographic survey descriptive reports that vary in content over time, from brief handwritten notes in the earliest reports to detailed statements and completed standard forms in the later reports. These reports were prepared to cover surveys of the immediate coastal waters of the United States. Generally, the reports describe the conditions under which the survey was performed and the factors affecting the adequacy of the survey. There are very few original reports dated prior to 1900. Early reports usually contain the dates of the survey, names of the survey party members, a description of the area to be surveyed, as well as a discussion of the survey stations, equipment, and techniques. Later descriptive reports often reference earlier surveys of the subject area, adjoining surveys, and published nautical charts covering the area. Later report contents include project overviews and approvals, vessel and equipment lists, tidal observations and related data, determinations of horizontal control accuracy, verification of survey points and stations, a graphic index to adjoining surveys, a geographic names sheet, and recommendations for further survey work. Some hydrographic surveys do not have descriptive reports, and some descriptive reports cover more than one survey. NN3-023-05-002(C).
