EarthNC - on iPad, iPhone, and Android

Oh, have I got a treat for you.  I stumbled upon this nugget of awesome while perusing the website of Boating Times Long Island

This Google Earth style map has all of the goodies at NOAA, except that those handy buttons at the top can indicate weather, ATONS, bridges, marinas, anchorages, ramps, points of interest, and Google content associated with the area.  Clicking on these icons brings up icons on your map that are clickable with lots of good information.  How’s this anchorage?  Just click and learn exposure, general wind direction, and bottom conditions.

You can also make virtual waypoints and check out your cruise before you go.  So, download the app on your iProduct or Android, or use the online viewer.  Now get out there and travel!
