Navionics, the leader in content and location-based services for the sailing and recreational boating markets, has released a software development kit (SDK) which allows iOS app developers to integrate their charts within third party mobile apps.
Navionics provides a complete cartography resource including depth data in up to 1 ft/0.5 m HD contours, spot soundings, detailed shorelines, navigational objects, updated daily, to enhance the user experience of apps for sailing, fishing and diving.
Examples of apps soon to offer Navionics charts are ProNav’s trolling motor route creation, Pro Angler’s fishing locations, Sail Timer’s tack display, AnemoTracker’s wind data and Siren Marine’s vessel tracker.
The Navionics+ subscription, available for purchase within the Navionics Boating app, provides access to Nautical Chart and SonarChart™ for marine and lakes, with daily updates.
The free mobile SDK faciltates the integration of Navionics cartography in a range of contexts from commercial to recreation, education and conservation.
