-Recent Ports- integrated and New -Voyage info-

in News, Site Updates by

Last weekend was tough. When adding six brand new harddrives to the server, the sync process took almost 12hours, which was quiet a burden for the server, when all of you came from the weekend, ready to start up Fleetmon in the morning. The database is in full effect, with lots of new opportunities. Now there is enough space and faster drives too and also some exciting new features implemented.

Over the last weeks Thomas worked on a zone scheme and alerting functions. We are taking snapshots of regions and ports the vessels are in, storing this into a new database.
We started using this new info by adding a “recent ports” list on the vessel detail page, running for a week now. Be prepared for more to come and tell us, how you like it.

Also our graphic skills got some chances due to new Vessel-Type-Icons. Streamlining them with the color-scheme of our friends at marinetraffic,  should make it easy for users to learn reading charts here and on other sites. We will use this icons in the new Fleetmon Client and other apps.

One will be the new Fleetmon iPhone Client, which is about to be released at the apple website in the next two weeks. This is cool stuff, with a special “spotter” mode, we will give you the insides, as soon the approval was succesfullwith apple.

This really took some time to program, and now we can fully concentrate on the Site again, defining milestones for Fleetmon V2.
Thomas and me will take a short holiday break next week, some time to relax and write mails again.
All of you have a nice summer too.


Happy New Year 2009

Mobile Tracking with Your Phone

in News, FleetMon Apps by

We are very excited about our new piece of software for mobile Phones called MobTrack.

It could well support us shipspotters by tracking locations and store positions right into our images.

Putting it on your mobile will give you the opportunity to show your live movements on a web-Page. And when I say live, I mean real-live (ok 3 sec delay between sending and showing). We set up a page to demonstrate the functionality and to download the software for JAVA phones.
Free for all, the DS principle.
For the time of Beta-Testing I will also show my tracks to everyone, after that phase, we will introduce buddylists.
See and try it: www.digital-seas.com/mob
