ABOUT

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.

 

Functionalities

DONIA offers an enriched cartographic rendering that will enhance your sea trips! The Premium version, with an annual or monthly subscription, will transform your application into a unique navigation tool.

Download your navigation areas

Before going to sea, don’t forget to download your navigational maps so that you can continue to benefit from the enriched data even without an internet connection !

Access enriched maps

Donia provides its users with unprecedented information at sea (precise mapping of marine ecosystems, location of rocky areas, diving sites, preferred anchoring points), on land (ports, points of interest, satellite images) or even surface activities thanks to user sharing.

Respectful anchoring

Thanks to the Anchoring function, preserve fragile ecosystems by avoiding anchoring in seagrass beds and coraligenous reefs! Preferential anchoring zones, coupled with the weather, allow you to choose sheltered areas for the next 72 hours.
