These should be two different words, right? But in some context, these two words seem to share the same meaing. Why?

Hmm. It does seem to be used a lot, so perhaps it's a case of a word's evolution. If you SAY char-tid and char-terd they sound a lot a like, so maybe people have used "unchartered" when the right would should have been "uncharted" for so long that it's now an acceptable definition, at least in common use.

If you Google "Unchartered territories" and then "Uncharted territories" you'll get many, many more hits for the second. And if you Google unchartered by itself, Google will ask you if you actually meant uncharted.

I found one definition of "charter" that I had forgotten about, which is the granting of land. So "unchartered territory" would be land not officially granted - in other words, a place no one officially owns, and by extention, a place not well explored.

And I could be all wet (no pun intended - that's an expression that means "completely wrong") about my thoughts.

Still, I'd stick with "charted," espcially if you're actually talking about water, currents, islands, depth, etc.
