New Jersey event plans coastline remap after Sandy

Navionics is partnering with the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey, West Marine and other New Jersey businesses to help remap the state coastline that Hurricane Sandy drastically changed.

The businesses have organized a three-day event July 19-21 called the Sandy Project to remap affected coastal areas. The project coordinates local boaters in gathering sonar logs and other cartographic data, which will be combined with Navionics mapping sources to build updated charts that will be available about a week after the event within the SonarCharts layer on Navionics products.

The effort also seeks to raise funds for the Hurricane Sandy Recovery & Relief Fund. Navionics has pledged to donate $1 for every mile of sonar logs uploaded during the event, up to $5,000, to the fund.

Navionics representatives will be at three locations to kick off the event with how-to seminars. There will be free food, drinks and prizes to those who show up to learn how to help fellow boaters remap the coast. Seminars will be held July 18 and 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the following locations:

• West Marine, 51 Chambersbridge Road, Brick, N.J.

• West Marine, 494 Market St., Perth Amboy, N.J.

• West Marine, Somers Point, 258 New Road, Somers Point, N.J.

Additional Sandy Project partners are the Manasquan River Club of North Brick, N.J., and ProMarine Electronics of Atlantic Highlands, N.J.
