Most reported AIS CLASS A destinations

These are the most reported destinations from 51444 ships (MSSI) (AIS Message 5) as pulled from AISHubs data feed. Interestingly major harbours from the People Republic of China  are under represented.

Possibly because of a language barrier.  Overall, over the whole set, the freely to be entered destination field has very varied entries, from obscure entries to nothing or just question marks.

The data was cleaned for the most common mistakes, like added spaces or useless punctuation.
