C-MAP App Now Available Worldwide with CrowdSourced Genesis Layer

Viareggio, Italy – C-MAP®, a leader in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, has made its crowdsourced mapping data called “Genesis” available on the C-MAP navigation app, as well as across Lowrance®, B&G® and Simrad® app powered by C-MAP charts.

The Genesis layer allows all users across the world the ability to see C-MAP’s extensive crowd-sourced database of marine mapping data that has been reviewed and quality controlled by C-MAP engineers before being published publicly as an option to view on the app’s charts.

“The addition of Genesis on the C-MAP App is just another enhancement that allows users to get the best possible mapping information so they can fish better and know more about what lies beneath the waters,” said Max Cecchini, Executive Vice President, C-MAP.

The Genesis layer itself adds more than 30,000 submissions to C-MAP charts and can be especially useful for small inland lakes where government cartography agencies have not reached or have not updated official data for decades. The U.S. and Nordic regions in particular have been very active in user-generated mapping data and uploads, although sonar logs have been submitted from over 80 countries since its inception providing a big global footprint.

“Genesis has been around for many years but getting this directly in the hands of boater’s smartphones was a key step in taking advantage of this crowdsourced data,” said Cecchini. “Adding this layer as a simple toggle on your smartphone app, whether that’s the C-MAP, Simrad®, Lowrance® or B&G® App is an option that will benefit all boaters.”

User uploads to Genesis have logged nearly one million total hours on the water over the past five years to supplement official charting data provided by government bathymetric agencies across the world.

Also added to the C-MAP App, is a global promotional referral program that provides six months of free high-resolution bathymetry to any user who refers three new users to the C-MAP App or apps from Simrad®, Lowrance® or B&G® that sync with their on-board displays including chartplotters and fishfinders. To refer friends, simply share your unique link from the dropdown in the main menu, and choose how you want to share (via Social Media, WhatsApp, text message, etc.). You’ll automatically receive your six months of free HRB when three friends install the App
