Established in 2004, AISLive now covers over 1,200 places worldwide and is the most cost effective method of tracking vessels in real time available today. With more than 13,000 vessels under coverage at any one time and state of the art viewing software, tracking fleets has never been so easy. AISLive 2 is now available and offers state of the art chart application, which has a global folio of charts and 16 levels of zoom. Vessels can be tracked right down to the berth with email alerts to the user when the vessel arrives in any of the global trigger zones.
The position of each vessel within the areas of coverage is displayed on a chart which may be refreshed 24 hours a day. By simply clicking on a vessel, additional details are available such as IMO number, MMSI, latitude, longitude, course, speed and next port. The network grew by 300% in 2006 and will continue to expand in 2007.
Users of AISLive, which include port authorities, ship agents, brokers, charterers, port service suppliers, ship-owners and civil authorities, may use the real time ships movements service by either connecting their port via an installation kit, available for a one off cost or subscribing by paying an annual fee.
