Heavy seas on FleetMon Explorerin Updates, Site Updates by FleetMon HQ
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.
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.
