Why is part of the map information cut off?

When looking at VFR or IFR charts, you may see a line where information seems to be cut off. The FAA publishes charts individually rather than as one seamless chart. Therefore, we have to "stitch" them together. We can't stitch these charts together perfectly, but we're working hard to make them look as good as possible.

When we display charts, they can be thought of as overlapping. In areas where there are seams, you can use the Map Touch Feature to bring a chart to the foreground to be able to view the area without the seam. 

Also, you can tap & hold on the map to get a pop-over of nearby information for that area. You'll be able to view information about airports, navaids, airspace, etc.

Last, if you zoom near a seam of a TAC chart, it may initially look like a seam issue, but it is not. You can identify this by the white TAC line across the seam area (See image 3).  In this case, zoom out so that the TAC is not showing or use the Map Touch Feature to bring the chart you desire to the foreground.
