VFR Raster Charts

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) digital-Visual Chart series is designed to meet the needs of users who require georeferenced raster images of FAA Visual Flight Rules (VFR) charts. An Aeronautical Raster Chart is a digital image of an FAA VFR Chart. All information that is part of the paper chart is included in the file. The area inside the neat line is georeferenced to the surface of the earth. Only the main body of the chart is accurately georeferenced.

Each digital-Visual Chart is provided in one TIF file. The files are 300 dots per inch and 8-bit color. The product is provided as a GeoTIFF and is available for public viewing from this website. As each paper chart is updated, its raster equivalent is also updated and available for viewing on this website. Please ensure you are using the most current chart by referring to the chart legend.

Charts in compressed (ZIP) format contain a TIF, geospatial and metadata files. Additional format charts are provided as Portable Document Format (PDF).

For Current and Next Effective Dates see the DOLE April 18, 2024

Western Aleutian Islands Sectional is divided into an East and West side. Hawaiian Islands Sectional includes the Honolulu, Samoan Islands, and Mariana Islands Insets as separate georeferenced files. Georeferencing information for all other insets should be disregarded.

Next Editions will be available 20 days prior to their effective date. Please report any application errors and provide comments via the portal's Website category.
