MAERSK's European Density of 350 ships as detected by coastal AIS trackers

Essential knowledge: MAERSKs global density pattern

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.

This is the data that was picked up from AIS volunteers around the globe. There reach is not 100% and records mostly near coastal positions.

 

The global density of this data shows as follows (animated gif)
