November 30, 2016  - By

aquamap-wAqua Map is an iOS and Android app for GPS marine navigation, aimed at boaters and fishermen.

The app integrates official nautical charts for many areas in the world, including the NOAA, CHS (Canadian Hydrographic Service), British Admiralty and Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie as well as S-57 and raster cartography.

The app provides users with a clear chart using the full power of the Retina display, intuitive realistic symbols and colors. No experience in water navigation is needed.

Most of the functions are accessible with simple gestures on the map, and all are clearly described in the Aqua Map Tutorial and Help.
