We continue to find very neat websites that are great for monitoring various types of population and transit….
First it was the TSA its self….
Then a VP seeing our research showed us her company website that has fancy enhanced features at Fligence.com
Then we stumbled upon the Kastle back to work monitor…
Now another new tracker… but this time boats!
Marine Traffic – Marinetraffic.com
Last week on an Institutional Investor conference call, one of the presenters mentioned watching Marinetraffic.com
Music to our ears…. another cool way to review the Economy and world transit.
The following is from the website, but there is also a very neat downloadable cell app, that has most of the same features.
With a monthly subscription (certainly a Naval person’s must) you can slice and dice the worlds naval transit in almost any way one would want….
Without a subscription, our situation, there is still a TON of neat information— on the live site you can hover over each boat and get more information!
Pattern is very interesting, looks like close to shore for protection?
Tankers – Oil, LNG and other similar commodity transportation
More direct and less shore line hugging- interesting – maybe they are bigger?
Fishing Boats – How neat is that!
Satellite tracks these guys …certainly in areas that would be expected- warm!
USA Coasts– Wow – Gulf of Mexico
Look for us to review this in the future….
Sure wished we would have known of this before, but better late than never!
Have a Great “Marine Traffic” Day!
