The Dominion Hydrographer of Canada has created a survey for hydrographic offices worldwide on the pricing of paper charts. The survey contains questions about actual pricing and past developments, relationships with distributors, and about distribution and production.
The Dominion Hydrographer aims to advise the national government on a pricing policy, in view of the fact that the prices and distribution methods of paper charts have not been changed for a long time. Before making changes, further understanding is required of how other hydrographic offices deal with paper navigational products.
The questionnaire on paper chart pricing and distribuition is available through the IHO website.
