FleetMon Explorer now gives you quick and detailed information on current weather and sea state conditions anywhere on the globe. We introduced new information layers on
- wind speed and direction,
- swell wave height and direction,
- direction and speed of oceanic currents
which can all be displayed together with live real-time ship movements, on top of satellite maps or nautical charts.

Knowledge of sea state and currents help you in voyage planning, alternative routing and fuel saving. The new functions enable you to analyze a vessel’s behavior with consideration to the conditions it is in.
Enhance your situation awareness with the new maps. Be informed about areas with heavy seas. Keep an eye on hurricances, typhoons and cyclones, their impact and development, right together with your fleet’s positions, in one software tool.

…and leaves heavy seas southeastern of the island
Ocean currents in the Southern Pacific are heavily influenced by the cyclone, too.

The wind and sea state service is available for subscribers to the FleetMon.com Pro and Unlimited plans (Pro: wind only). For further details, see our Plans & Prices page. Use the buttons “wind”, “wave” and “currents” within FleetMon Explorer to toggle the respective map layers.
With our sister product FleetMon Satellite Tracking, fleet managers can leverage the full potential of FleetMon’s extensive environmental information for their fleet: FleetMon Satellite Tracking offers weather and sea state both in review and forecast. Additionally, detailed environment data is available for review with any past voyage.

We are introducing a new shiny labeling display.
We made the display of the vessel tracks even more precise and introduced a new modus for the last track of a selected vessel. If the vessel is on its journey for more then 24h FM Explorer will recall the traveled route to the last port visited.
The new feature will give you more insight with just a single click.

This year Sunsail will present the 80th “Round the Island” race on the cost of South England.
Today we can follow quiet a lot Sunsail Yachts equipped with Class B AIS transponders in the Solent. With the short delay of some seconds (AIS transmission), this is an almost live experience and very attractive to watch.

Our vessel tracking app “Fleetmon mobile” today got selected by Apple as a highlight, featuring it at the startpages of the iTunes AppStore. That is a nice result for the hard work on this software and the efforts to give you the really best in mobile vessel search and ship traffic monitoring.
When started three years ago, we had a couple hundred ships listed, mainly tracked in the Southern Baltic. Our effort to build a good designed vessel list, which could constantly grow, has been a success.
With the great help of our members here at Digital-Seas, we’ve created one of the best free resources on the web, today crossing the mark of 100.000 vessels listed. Thanks for that! (more…)
we have done a bit of sorting in our new AIS sources from Africa, Asia and Europe and created new pages for the real time view with Fleetmon:

The first Ports of our neighbor country Poland are now with Gdańsk and Gdynia covered, which makes us very happy.
Those are quiet busy ports in the Baltic Sea and it’s good to go east with the traffic monitoring.
