Major Update to Bahamas Charts Released

Major Update to Bahamas Charts Released

With the acquisition of Wavey Line Charts, Navionics gained a large amount of valuable data for the Bahamas. Our expert cartography team went right to work, as part of ongoing product enhancement, to analyze and process Wavey Line’s extensive surveys and proprietary charts. After applying cutting-edge technologies and specialized processing skills to integrate the new data with other sources, the results are being released within Navionics’ high-quality chart coverage of the area.

The result of this effort is amazing and is already available as updates to the islands south of the archipelago, including Andros, Berry, Bimini, Cat, Conception, Crooked & Acklins, Eleuthera North, Eleuthera South, Exuma, Grand Bahama, Great Abaco, Inagua, Jumentos, Little Abaco, Little San Salvador, Long Island, Mayaguana, New Providence, Plana Cay, Ragged, Rum Cay, Samana, San Salvador, Turks & Caicos. Additional areas will be released in the coming weeks.

Updated content includes, but is not limited to, spot soundings, obstructions, bathymetry, coastline adjustments, reefs & rocks, shallow waters, wrecks, dry areas, depth contours, and navaids. Reefs are now more clearly visible due to a new presentation designed specifically for this type of chart feature.
