The DONIA application allows boaters, divers, fishermen and all sea lovers to exchange information while helping to protect sensitive marine ecosystems in compliance with the law. It offers an enriched cartographic rendering by integrating the nature of the seabed, bathymetry, regulations at sea, satellite images, points of interest, and many specific sites (diving sites, ports, anchorages, underwater photographs, observations of application users).
DONIA – Enjoy & protect the sea, together
DONIA is a community application for navigating and anchoring out of fragile ecosystems that can be downloaded for free on Apple and Android stores. Available on smartphone and tablet, it allows all sea lovers to benefit from accurate nautical charts enriched with multiple information, on land and at sea.
DDONIA works and raises awareness for the preservation of the environment by providing extremely accurate maps of marine ecosystems that allow anchoring outside of seagrass beds, in compliance with the law.
DONIA proposes to live the traditional maritime solidarity by sharing information on the dangers seen at sea (obstacles, accidents, jellyfish, SOS alert, etc.).
DONIA Premium – New data and navigation functionalities
The Premium version gives access to SHOM (Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine) nautical charts, high definition bathymetric charts on rocky spots, an atmospheric forecast model and preferential anchoring areas. The anchoring areas proposed to you are chosen according to the mapping of fragile ecosystems and weather forecasts for greater safety and eco-responsibility.
The premium version offers navigation tools (prediction arrows, waypoints and measurement tools, navigation tracks) and safety at sea (skid, entanglement and collision alert pack).
It integrates the AIS (Automatic Identification System) data of vessels from the AISHUb network.
