Navionics WebApi 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 approch: jQuery probably being the most well known.


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