We improved the display of a vessel's historical track in FleetMon Explorer. Now you have access to crucial route information to gain deep insights on maneuvers and maritime incidents. Have a look at the features we added to the historical track in detail:

Speed analysis

Have you noticed that the historical track of a selected vessel is displayed in different colors? The colors represent the different speed grades of a vessel's movement.

  • A red-colored track means that the vessel moved with its maximum speed.

  • A green-colored track represents the average speed of a vessel.

  • A yellow-colored track amplifies that the vessel moved with a speed that is around half of the average speed.

  • A blue-colored track means that the ship had a speed of 0kn at that time.

Depending on the speed, the colors merge into one another in gradients. That is why brown and light green colored tracks are possible as well.

Last Port:

If you search for a vessel or click on a vessel on the map, the past track since the last port of call will be displayed. A green anchor icon on the map symbolizes the last port the vessel called at on its route.

Track Inspector

Check out the Track Inspector on the right-hand side of the detailed vessel view window. The feature icon is found below the bell icon used for creating event alerts.

Activating the Track Inspector enables you to analyze the historical and predicted track of the selected vessel further. The selected ship's historical track will be displayed in a prominent manner while the other ships on the map are faded out. This helps you to focus on a specific vessel route without being distracted. A fine line represents the historical route running from the last called port to the vessel's last position received via AIS.

Note: If you want to select a different vessel when the Track Inspector is activated, make sure to deactivate it first. Otherwise, you will not be able to select another ship.

Hover States With Detailed Route Information

We added useful information to the historical track of a vessel as well. If you search for a vessel or click on a ship on the map, its historical track is shown. When examining the past track of the vessel closer, you'll find white-colored, arrow-shaped supporting points.

Check out the new Hover States of the historical track. If you hover over the historical track of a selected vessel, a grey box with route information is displayed. The box shows the following information at a glance:

  • Speed of the vessel at that point of the route

  • Draft of the vessel at that point of the route

  • Course of the vessel at that point of the route

  • Timestamp of the AIS signal received at that point of the route
