We deliver Vessel Traffic Analyses for maritime areas

Traffic in the Baltic Sea - 30 day ship traffic example

Example: Ship Traffic in the Baltic Sea: 30 days

Maritime traffic analysis for regional planning with AIS and GIS software

Example: Maritime traffic analysis for regional planning with AIS and GIS software, seacharts

Example: Global vessel traffic route visualization combining satellite AIS and terrestrial AIS records

Long-term vessel position and track data from our AIS records is available both for terrestrial and satellite AIS.

Our datasets are suitable for: surveys, statistical analyses and simulations, and provide invaluable information for construction planning, risk assessment or collision/casualty replay for insurance cases.

We deliver complete analyses, georeferenced images, shapefiles for GIS software, Microsoft Excel, CSV, raw data or any other format you might need.

Criteria available for statistical evaluation comprise (but are not limited to)

  • geographical area of interest and time frame of interest
  • ships by vessel type (passenger, cargo, tanker, tug, pilot, law enforcement, ...)
  • details on cargo type
  • ships by flag
  • destination and course
  • velocities (speed over ground)
  • dimensions (width, length, draught)
  • date/time of port arrival and sailing
  • vessel voyage/itinerary history

Raw NMEA streams for special uses

Special scenarios in offshore businesses, authorities and military may require raw NMEA feeds of AIS ship position data. FleetMon is able to deliver raw feeds with a latency as low as one second for marine areas of your interest. Please contact us to discuss your case. Note: Such feeds are useful only with appropriate real-time software. If you are not bound to using specific software, FleetMon Explorer may just be the real-time tool that you are looking for. In many applications, an update rate of several minutes is more than sufficient. Then, an XML API data service as described above is the tool of choice. It frees your software from all the heavy lifting that does behind the scenes, and lets you benefit from its extensive resources, beyond pure AIS information.
