You were familiar with FlightRadar24, a pretty bluffing tool that allows real-time monitoring of active planes around the globe. Marine Traffic is its equivalent for maritime navigation. You will indeed have the opportunity to know, always in real time, the positions of boats and yachts around the world.
Connected to the largest network of AIS (Automatic Identification System) receivers, this application covers the majority of major ports and maritime routes.
If, for example, you would like to charter theAnglo Jessica, giant of the seas, in order to transport the 98,000 tonnes (equivalent to 20,000 hectares) of feed barley that you have just sold to your customer in Saudi Arabia for his horses, you can follow the progress of your cargo at any time . In the absence of a commercial contract, you will be able to content yourself with following a tug, a pleasure boat, etc.
– Follow on the map, and live, ships and boats of all types.
– Search for ships, boats, seaports, and observe all activity near your location.
– More than 100,000 vessels report their positions every day via Marine Traffic AIS.
– Consult the real-time wind conditions, as well as the wind forecast 48 hours in advance.
– Animated reading of the trajectories of the ships.
– Live arrivals and departures from over 4,000 ports and marinas, current port conditions, and arrival estimates (ETA) of boats and ships.
– Manage your list of vessels (My fleet), from your mobile devices and on the MarineTraffic.com site.
– 2.5 million photos of ships, ports, lighthouses, etc., to consult.
The last function integrated into the application will allow you to locate, at a glance, the ships around you thanks to augmented reality (option to purchase from the application).
The application is only available in English.
