Navionics Debuts Free Web API

Press Release
Monday, February 25, 2013

Navionics announced the availability of its new Web Application Programming Interface, Web API. Making its premier charts easy to add to any website, Web API breaks new ground in how organizations and individuals can access and interact with Navionics cartography. The programming tool allows developers to integrate or embed Navionics maps onto websites to enhance marine-based content such as fishing tournaments, seaside retail locations, marina-life studies, editorial and more.

The new Navionics Web API not only allows developers to add bathymetric maps of the seas, lakes and oceans to their website, but also lets them layer location-based content of their choice over the Navionics chart. An exceptional reference tool that offers unlimited potential uses, the charts can be integrated with common third party maps such as Google, Bing and Yahoo, and offer the same exceptional, localized Navionics data shown on chartplotters and mobile devices. The Web API maps feature a full search function, and precise Navionics data including tides and currents.

The Navionics Web API developer solution is free to all users and can be downloaded from Navionics.com/en/web-api. The API is available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Completing a simple, click-thru license agreement is required.
