All over the world important publishers, international organizations, marine electronics manufacturers, charter companies, fishing forums and others have implemented the Web API to enhance their websites. Dedicated partner support is available to assist with implementation. Check out the docs, code examples for developers, partners examples and the video to get started.

codeNavionics Web API is implemented in object oriented API that aims to provide more readable code. There are many examples of JS libraries that use some variant of this approach: jQuery probably being the most well-known.


Navionics Web API is based on OpenLayers 3.0.0, an open source (provided under the 2-clause BSD License) JavaScript library for displaying map data in web browsers. OpenLayers provides an API for building rich web-based geographic applications and you can use it to extend the Navionics Web API.ol3-0

All you need to start using Navionics is an access token: it’s a short code that lets you use your Navionics account’s capabilities. You can use the same access token with our interactive mapping libraries, React and JavaScript SDKs, and even directly against our REST APIs.
