Abstract:

The World Port Index gives the location, characteristics, known facilities, and available services of a great many ports and shipping facilities and oil terminals throughout the world. The selection of these places is based on criteria established by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. They are not random choices. The applicable chart and Sailing Directions is given for each place listed. The edition contains information available to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency up to 31 October 2009, including Notice to Mariners No. 44 of 2009. In order to present such a large amount of diversified data in a single volume of convenient size, a simple code is used to indicate certain types of information. The code symbols are explained at the top of each page of text. The Sailing Directions, in some instances, may be consulted to obtain additional detailed information. The specific Sailing Directions can be found in NGADLIS Catalog of Maps, Charts and Related Products.
