South Florida’s Waterways To Be The First Featured On Google Maps Technology

Drivers love Google Maps, and soon boaters will too. 

Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF), the largest marine trade organization in the Southeast United States, has announced its partnership with the region’s certified Google Street View content provider.

Together they will bring Google Street View technology onto the Intracoastal Waterway and the network of connected waterways, as well as many waterfront and land-based businesses serving boaters. The new mapping system is called Waterway View.

Waterway View and its mobile app are fully interfaced with Google Maps programming, giving boaters immediate access to information when they are out on the water. The Google Street View “blue line” will follow the waterway to help navigate boaters in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and portions of Monroe counties.

The Waterway View app will be free and available for download on the Apple App and Google Play stores, as well as on MIASF’s website.

Waterway mapping began in February in Broward County and the project is set for completion by summer 2018 in Key Largo. The app will be available to download in June.
