The GeoGarage team is leading some experimentation about the display of AIS live tracking online.
Using some specific hardware connected to a AIS receiver for sending AIS raw data automatically to the GeoGarage server (no need of additional PC), we have the following displays :
- Nantes/Saint Nazaire harbor with nautical maps overlay courtesy from SHOM (authorization for reproduction n°140/2008 for charts #7395 and 7396)
- Pointe à Pitre (Guadeloupe) harbor with nautical maps overlay courtesy from SHOM (authorization for reproduction n°409/2009 for chart #6948 and 7100)
Note : these two data flow are sent to MarineTraffic by GeoGarage for its own use
By the way, Marine GeoGarage is also studying the impact of nautical chart overlay on other Live AIS website such as :
- San Francisco bay ship traffic
