The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Terminal Area Raster Chart series is designed to meet the needs of users who require georeferenced raster images of FAA Visual Flight Rules,(VFR) 1:250,000 scale Terminal Area Charts (TAC). A raster Terminal Area Chart is a scanned image of an FAA Terminal Area Chart. All information that is part of the paper TAC aeronautical chart is included in the raster image. The image inside the neat line is georeferenced to the surface of the earth. Georeferencing information for insets should be disregarded, only the main body of the chart is accurately georeferenced.
Most Terminal Area Raster Charts are provided as a single file. The files are 200 dots per inch and 8-bit color. The product is provided as a GeoTIFF and available for public viewing from this website. Information regarding the public sale DVD product is available at: digital - Visual Chart. As each paper tac 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 refering to the chart legend.
Terminal Area Charts that have an associated Flyway Chart now include that Flyway Chart as a raster scan image (tif) as part of the download zip file. These scans have no associated geo-referencing information.
Download TAC charts in zip format containing a TIF, geospatial and metadata files.
Files which are in the .zip format will need to be uncompressed using an unzip utility.
Follow the instructions to install the ZIP utility program on your computer.
Note: The names of the individual TAC files will have spaces in them after they are unzipped. This may cause problems for users who are not using a Windows operating system. If you are using an operating system other than Windows you may need to rename the files by omitting the spaces.
Should you discover or encounter an error in any of our products, you are encouraged to contact us immediately.

The FAA has no effective way to contact every individual that has viewed a digital product; therefore, you are requested to check theAlerts/Notices webpage often.
