A vessel density map shows the distribution of vessels (e.g., maritime traffic) based on the instantaneous number of vessels per unit area, such as a square kilometer, a square degree, etc. Vessel density maps are often generated starting from ship positions retrieved from the Automatic Identification System (AIS).

Simply visualize local and global shipping lanes, and determine exact traffic areas in worldwide ports and at sea. Follow patterns of movement and spot fast any anomalies in the area of interest. Filter vessel routes by vessel type and signal type (terrestrial or SAT-AIS). Inspect the routes of worldwide fishery in real-time.

No GIS or ARCGis package is needed. All are available as an integrated Layer of FleetMon Explorer.ย
