THe British Admiralty announce that they have completed the digitising of China's seas and navigable rivers on digital charts.

I presume that they will be in the Queens English ( but on request and at a price could be available in Pu Tong Wah)

It is scandalous that The Admiralty & The UKHO, both publicly funded, continue to demand payment for the very charts compiled using taxpayers' money ....... whilst they may not wish to make their charts as freely available as NOAA in USA, there is every reason for making them available to not-for-profit organisations & recreational users ...... for FREE ............ C'mon, the Ordnance Survey have recently done it ..... grrrrrrrr
