This web site is part of an open, community-based project. It is dedicated in collecting and presenting data which are exploited in research areas, such as but not limited to the following:
– Study of marine telecommunications in respect of efficiency and propagation parameters
– Simulation of vessel movements in order to contribute to the safety of navigation and to cope with critical incidents
– Interactive information systems design
– Design of databases providing real-time information
– Statistical processing of ports traffic with applications in operational research
– Design of models for the spotting of the origin of a pollution
– Design of efficient algorithms for sea path evaluation and for determining the estimated time of ship arrivals
– Correlation of the collected information with weather data
– Cooperation with Institutes dedicated in the protection of the environment
It provides free real-time information to the public, about ship movements and ports, mainly across the coast-lines of many countries around the world. The initial data collection is based on the Automatic Identification System (AIS). They are constantly looking for partners to take part in the community. They will have to install an AIS receiver and share the data of their area with us, in order to cover more areas and ports around the world.
