C-MAP Ge­n­e­sis is a free marine-map­ping ser­vice (for­merly known as In­sight Ge­n­e­sis prior to Nav­ico’s ac­qui­si­tion of C-MAP) that in­cludes down­loads of charts cre­ated from data boaters get from their in­te­grated sounder and chart­plot­ter and share via an In­ter­net con­nec­tion, called So­cial Maps. This crowd-sourced data mul­ti­plies the ef­fec­tive­ness of chart­ing by us­ing mul­ti­ple sources. Now C-MAP is rolling out Ge­n­e­sis Edge, with its pre­mium set of fea­tures for an­glers, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to se­cure chart data rather than share it with the So­cial Maps—your cus­tom-made charts re­main your own. Ad­di­tion­ally, hard-core an­glers can cre­ate map lay­ers show­ing bot­tom hard­ness and un­der­wa­ter veg­e­ta­tion. These tools—which can be turned on and off, and used and ma­nip­u­lated by an­glers to suit their needs—have the po­ten­tial to change the fish­ing game. With ca­pa­bil­i­ties like these be­ing in­tro­duced in a widely ex­pand­able uni­verse that is lim­ited only by the imag­i­na­tion, con­sider the possibilities for chart­ing in the fu­ture—to be both shared and kept pri­vate.
