Navionics, the leader in content and location-based
services for the recreational boating and outdoor
markets, has published an advanced version of its
Web API. Offering organizations the ability to inject
Navionics cartography into their website, the latest
Web API release streamlines the process of adding
Navionics charts in conjunction with a long list of
advanced features to better engage with any online
audience. Implementation can be done easily and
allows the overlay of POIs and third party data.
An exceptional reference tool, Navionics Web API is
recommended for companies and professionals in
the boating industry who want to add the Navionics
Nautical Chart and/or SonarChart™, the HD bathymetry
map, to their website:
• Distributors and dealers can show the Navionics
• Fishing tournaments can georeference the
location of each event
• Marine electronics manufacturers can offer
customers a preview of the charts they will use in
• Marine equipment chains can show their local
network presence on a true Nautical Chart
See some examples at www.navionics.com/en/webapi-
examples. It’s also possible to overlay satellite
imagery with Bing (Google and Leaflet is available
with limited features), zoom in/out, measure distance,
and select preferred units of measurement. Tracks can
also be quickly added by importing Keyhole Markup
Language (KML) files.
The Web API is available in English, Italian, French,
Spanish and German. To learn more, see examples, or
