Maintenance Team starts night shift

Here is an image from our planning session this night, right befire we start the works to switch over the Fleetmon service to a new environment. The team is “still” optimistic, we do have 2 degrees with lots of rain here in Rostock. Best circumstances to start a night shift. Fridge is filled, plans are made…. lets go.


Scheduled (end of year) maintenance 2011-12-14, 22:00-00:00 UTC

Dear friends of Digital Seas, on Wednsday night we will take care for our databases and switch to new cloud based services. This will bring a downtime for our main site, which we estimate with around two hours until midnight.
For about this time , access to FleetMon Explorer and the website as well as photo uploads will not be possible.

Thanks for your patience, stay tuned and be surprised with the results!

New: The FM Photobox App – fascinating ship photography

It’s simply fantastic to see the great pictures added on Fleetmon.com every day, shared by people with the same passion on ships and photography (A huge “thumbs up” to all of you!), and just about every day there’s a real pearl among the new uploads.

Now, we felt we must give this fantastic photo stuff the attention that it deserves, because even the most fascinating photos sometimes just remain hidden somewhere in the huge Fleetmon database.
That’s why we make a fresh start and now have the pleasure to announce something completely new: The Digital Seas Photobox! It’s a mobile phone “App” for iPhones and Android phones, presenting the newest and the best images on Digital Seas, galleries of cruise ships, night shots, majestic tall ships, impressive offshore vessels, powerful tugs in action, highest rated pictures…

Lean back and browse through the galleries – on your sofa, while waiting at the bus stop or on the next ship to arrive. You can save your favorite images in “My Photobox” and carry them with you for offline viewing.

See what it looks like on the new Photobox page, download from Android Market and AppStore and give it a try. The Photobox has new stuff for you every day!

We hope you like the new Photobox App and are looking forward to your comments and ideas! Enjoy!

HanseSail 2011 on the horizon, Fleetmon tracking for GREIF

August 2nd, 2011 FleetMon.com News


“Greif” is a majestic brigantine owned by the city of Greifswald in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. The ship is used as a training ship for maritime youth education.

Today it’s her 60th anniversary. All the best from our side!

The Greif was built in the Digital Seas hometown Rostock in 1952, so it’s a special honor for us to have this quite famous tall ship equipped by us with Fleetmon Satellite Tracking. During her voyages, the Greif’s office used to get lots of calls from friends and relatives of crew and guests asking for her position and schedule.

Thanks to Fleetmon Satellite Tracking, the Greif can now be followed on all her voyages, independent of AIS transmissions, even on high seas. Digital Seas provides hardware and platform to transparently merge AIS and satellite signals of the vessel into a constant and always up-to-date tracking experience.

The new Fleetmon Web map on the Greif homepage nicely shows the current position and last day track, so that friends and admirers can easily follow ship and company on all voyages.

Have a smartphone? Download the Fleetmon Sat mobile app for free and track the Greif on your mobile!

We’re looking forward to see her on the HanseSail 2011!
