NSBC Boating Data

Make data-driven decisions for everyday waterway challenges

About NSBC Boating Data

NSBC Boating Data provides insights about where, when, and how people move around your waterways. By analyzing over 1 billion real-time and historical data points, uncover the data that really matters to you, helping you make data-driven decisions.

We help governments, companies, industry, consultants, and researchers plan and understand waterway trends with greater accuracy.

Our anonymized and aggregated data reports and analytics capabilities empower stakeholders and decision makers to go beyond census data and answer questions about the waterways that were previously considered unanswerable, unlocking significant public safety, economic, and environmental outcomes.

How It Works

NSBC Boating Data is powered by our partnership with DECKEE, the free boating safety app partner of the National Safe Boating Council.

Boaters, anglers, sailors, and paddlers log their on-water activities with the free DECKEE mobile app every week. With respect for the community’s privacy, DECKEE and the NSBC strips this dataset of identifiers and aggregates it. What is left is a vast source of trends and insights.
