Lisboa, Terneuzen, Bremen, Antwerp online

in AIS Station Update, Community by

Always good to talk about new Stations in the network covering more maritime areas. Over the last weeks we covered the ports of Lisboa in Portugal and closed some reception gaps on the river Weser with an Antenna in Bremen.  The Port of Antwerp is now covered with three stations to give you the track of vesel traffic for this long entrance.
A new antenna in Kiel will finish the last bit of the Kiel-Canal between Rendsburg and the Kieler Förde, coming next Weekend. Thanks to Jose, Stevo and Bernward and Bernd from Navkom (please use the links to visit their projects and companies).
We are welcome very much, every attempt to share AIS signals with DS, or open new antenna stations in regions worldwide.

We are working hard on the new database scheme, it will be released next week and brings blasting speed and much better reliability (known issues with overwritten data will be solved). We also extended the reading of the complete AIS set, to be open for Class-B and all other messages. It is fun to follow the SARs objects in real time (much faster then the ordinary ship)  :-)   We adjusted the start view of the vessel search to reflect the most actual changes in traffic. There is also a new flag for beeing inside the coverage right in the list.

I will fly to Istanbul tomorrow, to have meetings and will give you some impressions over the next days.

Over the last two weeks we opened new AIS stations on Digital-Seas to extend the coverage.
There are now Antennas in Harlingen-NL, Samothraki-GR, Wismar,DE and another part of the river Elbe right above Hamburg,DE connected.
Thanks to Sebastiaan, Ralf, Dennis and the port of Wismar.
We are now working on AIS tracking in Portugal and Spain and yes, a little bit more of the States :-)

With our own AIS station right in the middle of Hamburg it is now possible for us to release the vessel traffic of this important German Port to the Public. Lot of ship-traffic to watch, use our viewer Fleetmon to get a real live impression.
No delays inside , pure joy, 24/7/365.

We did really liked this day a lot, thanks Akira ! Try here: Port of Hamburg

over the last month we opened our server for public sharing and arranged happily to show new areas of AIS coverage. Take a look at the Region-Section of “Fleetmon” to track now also vessels in Houston, Vancouver and Aalborg….

Thanks to Lars Schmidt from Denmark, Oleg Kovalyov from Canada and John Astad from the US.
We’re just preparing a section on the site to explain the process (it’s easy :)
