Abstract : Making hand corrections to nautical charts at the Naval Oceanographic Distribution Offices has been a procedure followed for many years. To alleviate many problems encountered by following this practice, an automated procedure was sought. With the advent of new materials and an automated cylinder type screen press, the time honored art of silk screening, presently referred to as screen processing, is recommended as the answer. It will result in a better quality end product while at the same time realizing savings in time, money, and manpower. The application of the screen processing method, by the Naval Oceanographic Office, has wide implications and should be closely studied and considered by all nations actively engaged in the production and maintenance of nautical charts.
