The 3D AIS tracking website deepship.ai comes now with 3D Icons for all A and B class ships.
This video shows how local AIS recording to a live Web 3D feed is done and then mixed with an international AIS feed.
Upper left, the ODROID and Rock64 + several AIS recorders and RTL SDR, the feeds coming in on the Mini PCs and to the right the live website.
Watch directly on youtube.
The Automatic Identification System is the focus of this article. I programmed the full stack to get my home AIS (Automatic Identification System) feed. Then I added AISHUB’s AIS feed on a 2D and a 3D Map.
I show this on www.deepship.ai. 30000 to 34000 live ships are tracked usually in 1 minute intervals.
Well for a project, I tried to find the number of ships in Venice, of which most do not seem to transmit AIS.
I couldn’t find an answer.
Old Venice has become famous for its pollution.
The claim is:
“As big ships sailed down the main canal, just a stone’s throw from the shore, my team recorded up to 500 ultra-fine particles per cubic centimetre – 500 times higher than clean sea air.”
Using Matlab and the Computer Vision System Toolbox, Image Processing Toolbox, Neural Network Toolbox, Parallel Computing Toolbox and the Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox, I labelled 1923 images from my web cam feed with tags, [ferry], [ship], [bird] [meteor].
From the 30th of December 2017 to the 26th of January 2018, all traffic starting with North Koreas country code (445) was logged from AISHub’s global feed. There are very few AIS reports. Only 1318 were logged in this time frame and most came from the UN BONG 2 (n=1236, 93.78%) .
On the 24. January 2018 during a very windy day the trawlers Destiny TT279 (235003952), Margarita TT26 (235090298), Spindrift (235113822),Silver Fern (235006892), Rebekah.Jayne (232003730), Silver Lining III (235006963), Alliance CN207 (235004196) drove in formation along the Kintyre coast.
I used to travel quite often with DFDS from Newcastle (North Shields) to Amsterdam (Ijmuiden) when I was a business analyst and partner in a company in Germany. As such I spent many nights on the North Sea on DFDS ships and saw many of the ships and ATons, Wind farms.
823602 AIS positional signals were detected from 350 ships that have the word “MAERSK” in their name and whose AIS signals were transmitted over AISHUB. Data was recorded from 2017-12-16 19:56:09 to 2018-01-04 22:19:20.
