Boating WA

Map and app for water sports in Washington state

Washington Hometown is currently working on our next generation of apps and web maps. Each set will be tailored to a specific activity and will have all the information you need to know. We will be launching selected apps through campaigns in late Summer 2019. We will pick our first apps based on the level of interest from users, community groups and businesses.

One of the sets we are planning to release is for all types of boating, fishing and water sports.

We will be adding user input to our interactive maps as we prepare to launch the apps. Each app will go into production as soon as we have 1000 people on the mailing list and 100 businesses interested in being on the app or sponsoring it.

Boating WA suggestions and mailing list

Help us understand what you want in a boating map/app. Some of the questions that will help us make this a better app:

  • What information do you need to find a boating facility:

    • How should we classify boat launches and facilities so you can filter and see just those suitable for you.

    • What water sports are you interested in.

    • What amenities and facilities do you need to be able to filter by (others will appear in the pop-up).

  • What other recreation facilities would you like to see on the map.

  • Would you like to see points of interest or viewpoints on the maps? Are there any boat specific locations that should be included?

  • What kinds of businesses (or specific businesses) would you like to see on the app.

  • Would you want to click on a section of a river or lake and see fishing regulations for that specific spot -and would you be willing to pay for that (the main app will be free)?
