We are permanently expanding our Terrestrial AIS Network!
To keep you updated, here’s an overview of this Month new AIS stations:
- Gothenburg, Sweden

Nebel is a municipality on the island of Amrum in the district of Nordfriesland in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Until 1939 Nebel had a rail head station of Amrum’s island railway. In Steenodde, there is a small trafficable dock. The hamlet used to be a port for the ferry line Amrum-Halligen-Schlüttsiel, today there is a small port for minor freight vessels and for yachts below 12 m of length.
Rouen is a city on the River Seine in the north of France. It is the capital of the region of Upper Normandy and the historic capital city of Normandy. The Seine is a major axis for maritime cargo links in the Port of Rouen. The Cross-Channel ferry ports of Caen, Le Havre, Dieppe Calais and the Channel Tunnel are within easy driving distance.

St. Catharines, Canada
St. Catharines is the largest city in Canada’s Niagara Region. It is the northern entrance of the Welland Canal. The most defining transportation icon of St. Catharines is the Welland Canal, a ship canal that runs 43.4 kilometres, passing through the city. Four of its locks are within city boundaries. The canal allows shipping vessels to traverse the 99.5 metre drop in altitude from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.

Liverpool, United Kingdom
Liverpool is a city in Merseyside, England, on the eastern side of the Mersey Estuary. The city is within the historic county of Lancashire. Its urbanisation and expansion were largely brought about by its status as a major port, which included its participation in the Atlantic slave trade. Liverpool was the port of registry of the ocean liner RMS Titanic, and many other Cunard and White Star ocean liners such as the RMS Lusitania, Queen Mary, and Olympic. It is also home to the UK headquarters of many shipping lines including Japanese firm NYK and Danish firm Maersk Line.

Gothenburg is the second-largest city in Sweden. The Swedish company Stena Line operates between Gothenburg/Frederikshavn in Denmark and Gothenburg/Kiel in Germany. Gothenburg is an intermodal logistics hub and Gothenburg harbour has access to Sweden and Norway via rail and trucks. Gothenburg harbour is the largest port in Scandinavia with a cargo turnover of 30 million tonnes per year.

Seaford, United Kingdom
Seaford is a coastal town in the county of East Sussex, on the south coast of England. In the Middle Ages, Seaford was one of the main ports serving Southern England, but the town’s fortunes declined due to coastal sedimentation silting up its harbour and persistent raids by French pirates. However, Seaford’s fortunes revived in the 19th century with the arrival of the railway connecting the town to Lewes and London. It became a small seaside resort town, and more recently a dormitory town for the nearby larger settlements of Eastbourne and Brighton, as well as for London.

Ionian Islands, Greece
The Ionian Islands are a group of islands in Greece. In recent decades, the islands have lost much of their population through emigration and the decline of their traditional industries, fishing and marginal agriculture. Today, their major industry is tourism. Specifically Kerkyra, with its harbour, scenery and wealth of ruins and castles, is a favourite stopping place for cruise liners.
