Our charts are quality controlled at all stages of production. Based on up-to-date official hydrographic surveys, they receive continual attention and amendment by our staff, who monitor corrections to ensure that our charts are always as correct as possible when dispatched.

All Imray charts are now based on WGS 84 datum. Apart from some of the Imray-Iolaire charts of the Caribbean Sea, all are metric.

Every chart includes details of the datum and projection on which it was based, to allow it to be used safely with GPS navigation systems.

Imray charts have been awarded official MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) recognition for use on Code vessels and fishing vessels under 24m in length.
