ABSTRACT: NaAVIC, is a free and downloadable Electronic Chart System app specifically developed for boats of all sizes looking for safe and reliable professional navigation functionality on mobile devices and/or laptops. The app offers a range of features to make navigation easy and reliable, delivered through a clear and intuitive interface designed specifically for navigating at sea. The capabilities cover the range of essential features needed to maintain safety and situational awareness. Separate processes for download and update of the electronic chart data is not required because data is streamed in real-time from a cloud based open source database. The data is supplied to NaAVIC from Nautilus Cloud, a cloud based infrastructure designed for Marine Data, Solutions and Services for Government Organizations, Commercial Industry and Consumers. Nautilus Cloud is a “cloud native” approach and leverages high quality, open source components as its base technology. It uses open standards throughout to build a low-cost system which is flexible and has a much greater degree of interoperability with pre-existing components. A key feature of the Nautilus Cloud platform is the expansion of data holdings into a much wider family of related geospatial data products including the S-100 framework, harmonized metadata, raster and real-time sources. In essence, NaAVIC can operate on real-time and up-to-date information from charting agencies without a separate updating process. This enables the integration of real-time tides, weather, currents and other oceanographic information.
