AIS Live service is now using dynamic interactive chart system which has revolutionised the service. With 5 different map sights, the real time fleet monitoring AISLive users may choose the mapping charts of choice.
AISLive Plus main features and services:
- * All existing AISLive Services - AISLive’s fleet monitoring service is providing coverage beyond 5 continents and access to vessel movementsand fleet monitoring via an online application that provides prompt and precise data.
- * Ports Database – Enhanced subscription is going to provide extensive details of more than 10 thousand ports and terminals that include a full description of the harbour and all of the appropriate facilities, pre-arrival and navigation details, cargo and berths, tanker berths, plans and mooring diagrams.
- Vessels in port - subscribers might see a list of fleet in the port for the last twenty four hours only.
- Vessels expected with alert notification - subscribers may see a list of vessels due in the port for the next twenty four hours only, and are going to be able to set up a simple alert notification that is going to confirm when the ship crosses the outer boundary of the port area.
- Vessels departed - subscribers are going to be able to see a list of ships that have departed the port for the last twenty four hours only.
- Event Time Line – the Event Time Line facility is a remarkable AIS live feature which may show a vessel’s status changes in the last seventy two hours and may show the time, latitude and longitude and draft information in a list.
- Watchlists – subscribers may make a fleet list for vessels of interest that might be accessed promptly to check the current location on the map. A list of up to fifty ships might be made and details checked along in one grid view.
Used fleet management maps for AIS Live fleet tracking:
- Standard C-Map - C-Map by Jeppesen which vector-based charts can offer unequaled navigational details.
- Bing Satellite – Satellite maps for fleet monitoring.
- Bing Standard – fleet management Road Maps. This sight displays vector imagery of roads increasing the naming of area.
- Composite Maps- Combination layered tiles of standard Bing road maps and C-Map used for real time vessel tracking.
- Auto Select which is on default – its enthralling feature is going to use a composite of the 4 mapping applications. As clients move throughout the divers zoom levels, the technology automatically chooses the best map for the selected maps for fleet management.
IHS Fairplay has began gathering historical data in 2004. They collect over 10 million single movements a month (once an hour, twenty four days, seven days a week). This figure now is in surplus of 8 million movements each month. It musn’t be interfered with the ammount of real time AIS live messages that IHS Fairplay obtains which is tens of thousands every month.
They have embedded this information into Sea-web as a module. Users have the opportunity to try this feature out for a few weeks by requesting a product evaluation.
How does their system work?
IHS Fairplay get an hourly ‘snapshot’ of the locations of all ships within their network. After that they pile these locations and match them against the Lloyd’s Register of Vessels database checking the precision of the reported inofrmation. They have made many thousands of automatic areas all around the world that dynamically inform when a ship has been there and also gives advises how long the ship spent in that area.
What does IHS Fairplay provide?
- Satellite Data - Satellite and land AIS data might be sprovided in a format of users’ choice, at a frequency of their needs, to integrate into their own system or for their own analysis for required for fleet management.
- AIS Live Data – the AIS Live data is going to be streamed to users in simple NMEA0183 format that is the international standard for AIS messages used in the real time fleet monitoring.
IHS Fairplay may provide data from a particular place everywhere around the world where they have an AIS receiver situated. This information can be secured as a live feed in raw NMEA 0183 format or they may also do it accessible through web-services or in an appropriate format for users’ application such as XML, CSV, XLS and so on.
For those users that have an access to Google Earth Pro, may send to IHS Fairplay a KMZ file and they will stream all needed information in that area direct to the users.
- Clean Data - AIS data sometimes exposes abbreviations of ship names or partial IMO numbers. The fleet monitoring company IHS Fairplay might get the raw data, blend it against their in-house vessels data and correct any irregularities. After that they can send it to their users for use in their applications.
- iFrame Data – IHS Fairplay have created an approach of isolating particular ships and after that calling them from the AISLive servers and displaying them in an iFrame. It is literally a window that is generated by AIS Live and that appears in a 3rd party application. IHS Fairplay customers include ship managers, ferry operators, vessel owners and different port communities that use the fleet monitoring service to show where ships are in specific area.
- IHS Fairplay Data – this data includes Ship, Company, Ports and Fixtures information. With a database of more than 180,000 ships, the Lloyd’s Register of Vessels data has been the industry benchmark since 1763 and to this day continues 2nd to none used for real time fleet monitoring.
