Sailing trips on the internet: Creating nautical routes online
May 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsDrawing sailing trips on a satellite map or calculating distances between marinas can now be done by any boating enthusiast also on the internet. The sailing portal marinamap.com which enables marinas from all over the world to be found by mouse click on a world chart has implemented a functionality to combine several marina locations into individual nautical routes. For each route the total distance, the distances between the marinas and a graphical image on base of Google Maps is displayed.
After a free registration users can save their routes permanently on marinamap.com, for example to share them online with friends or with the sailing community. Registered users also can create their own waypoints at arbitrary geographical positions so that they are as flexible as possible in creating their individual routes.
A basic route can be created with a few mouse clicks. For this, links can be found in the search results with each marina.
