Navionics changed the way people navigate by bringing to market the world's first electronic chart device in 1984, and quickly established an early lead in marine cartography followed by a series of technological innovations, to become a global leader in quality, coverage and value. Surveys are done both in the field and with remote sensing such as satellite imagery and airborne laser scanners.
