The Web API allows visitors to your website to see your content while they pan and zoom to view Navionics charts, including SonarCharts™ HD bathymetry, which can be toggled off and on for quick comparison with traditional nautical charts. Integration with third party maps enables you to add points or draw lines and polygons for a richer experience.
