C-MAP Launches Web Map Tiling Service (WMTS)
Egersund, Norway – C-MAP, a leader in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, announced today the launch of the C-MAP Web Maps Tiling Service (C-MAP WMTS) for developers.
C-MAP WMTS, available via developer.navico.com, allows companies to build their own map-aware applications based on a worldwide collection of C-MAP marine charts from Navico. The tiled Professional+ database has scale ranging from an overview of the entire world to highly detailed coastal and harbor charts. The chart and value-added data originates from official government bodies and commercial companies, and is produced, controlled and regularly updated by Navico’s professional cartographers.
Designed using Open Geospatial Consortium Standards (OGC), C-MAP WMTS is an excellent solution for web-based services such as AIS tracking, customer portals and situational awareness. In addition to the detailed database of charts, C-MAP also offers developers an extra weather forecast overlay, which includes barometric pressure, temperature, wind, precipitation total and swell waves. The weather service overlay is offered as a 15-day forecast package. It is also possible to combine charts with other geo-spatial value-added data.
C-MAP WMTS is ideal for companies developing applications for external clients connected to the internet and those that require marine charts on proprietary internal applications, such as shipping companies with their own vessel tracking systems. Registration on the developer portal is free.
