AIS Sites
« on: October 30, 2006, 01:40:36 PM »
For all those people out there that like to see where a ship there are several AIS sites that report live positions of ships.

Some sites require you to subscribe some don't.

AISLive is no longer available without a major subscription. No more Free section.

Vessel tracker - http://www.vesseltracker.com/en/Home.html Now has Panama Canal

Norway, AIS LIVE http://www.navcom.no/aislive/index.aspx

San Francisco, AIS LIVE, FREE, Real Time http://www.boatingsf.com/ais_map.php

Sail.wx http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shiplocations.phtml

Thanks to Joe for the information.

Phil

Phil,
This is what made me join up.
I have used AIS from the start.
Then they went greedy and wanted money to see the "live show" and then more greedy and restricted what you could see.
I lost Panama details all together until I noticed your link.
Many thanks...I have Panama back :bounce: :bounce:.
I thought I should join up as you have some great tips and yes a great forum.
Still missing New York harbour...do you have a link for this? :help:.
Thanks,
Pinky and Perky

Carolyn,
Many thanks for the information will give it a go.
Thought I had hit a dead end, never to see NY harbour again.
Yes AIS is good at giving "old" information, I once had the same screen shot of the English Channel for 1 week.
The ship I was following by this time was in the Mediterranean well on her way :doh:.
Emailed AIS..they said thanks for pointing it out...just a small problem :doh:

Cheers,
P & P.

P&P

AisLive (Free) changed so many of their links off the map that no longer are clickable. I have figured out how to get them back if you need an area that is shown on the AisLive map let me know and I will get it for you.

Phil,
Still missing New York harbour details that shows the container/ships berthed as well as some movements.
It used to be on the live AIS (free) like Panama, but got taken off for "pay only subscribers" I guess.
If you can get this on AIS live free for me that would be wonderful.
Thanks,
P & P. Cheers

New York (Staten Island) should be this link once you log in:

http://aisfree.aislive.com/Influx.aspx?Map=Staten%20Island

Let me know if this helps.

Glad I could help.

Well considering that Fairplay who owns AIS has a long record of bringing online new items for a period that are free then they slowly phase out the free period and then it is gone all together. They used have a free email/list that was about shipping many years ago and it had the same results.

AIS costs about 1200 GBP a year to subscribe.

 :help: :help: what can I use now  :help: :help:.

That is really bad news.
As a ships follower I use AIS often.

GBP 1200 p.a is really not on and is a lot to shell out.

The greed to make a profit spoils it for the humble enthusiast yet again  :doh:.
May have to take up knitting then  :o :P.

There are some smaller AIS sites but they are specific to the port. I will try and dig them out.
