The video shows the main traffic routes followed at global scale by ships flying the flag of States contributing to the EU Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) Cooperative Data Centre (CDC): all EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, and Overseas Territories of EU Member States*. The LRIT vessel positions are refreshed every 6 hours and reconstructed every hour using the European Commission Joint Research Centre's “Blue Hub” technology. The video covers a period of one month, giving a first insight into the potential of the data for performing statistical and other analysis of maritime transport routes of vessels flying EU LRIT CDC flags. The LRIT vessel positions can be polled over delimited areas by operational authorities in specific circumstances such as for Search and Rescue. ...
NEW VERSION AVAILABLE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CP-TcDtSFDI&hd=1 A week of ship traffic on the seven seas, seen from space. Get a glimpse of the vibrant lanes of goods transport that link the continents. The vessel movements were captured using newest terrestrial and space-borne AIS technology from FleetMon and its partner Luxspace. The records cover the world's merchant fleet with some 100.000s of cargo ships, tankers, ferries, cruise ships, yachts and tugs. FleetMon provides advanced fleet monitoring services, software APIs, reports and analyses of maritime traffic data. The inset shows live monitoring with the FleetMon Explorer software.

A marine research group is tracking a shark as it moves toward the Gulf of Mexico.
Imagine a week's worth of global shipping traffic compressed into one minute -- and seen from space. Using this reconstruction by vessel tracking site, Fleetmon, OPIS gives a new sense of the volume of products on the water, and how mixing the latest technology with old fashioned market reporting skills means OPIS's editors can publish at http://www.fleetmon.com/tankertracker/ a live commodity tracking service that is second to none.
Highly configurable, SightLine trackers can be tailored to meet challenging tracking situations.
By Sabrina Daniel The Ocean Tracking Network tracks the enormous migrations of sea creatures including Lydia the Shark, now famous for her transatlantic odyssey over the past year. Dalhousie University's Ocean Tracking Network (OTN) tags marine animals such as fish, sharks, seals and polar bears and tracks them using satellites and acoustic arrays. Placed across bodies of water, these devices create an acoustic wall that can detect the tagged animals as they pass through it. This allows OTN to record the movements of sea creatures in real time, study their survival and migration patterns, and observe their response to changing ocean climate. OTN also looks at the animals' genetic markers, diet, physiology, breeding strategies and how deep they dive to get prey. The Ocean Tracking Networ...
Although sea turtles spend most of their time in the ocean, we still know very little about their migration patterns. Satellite tracking helps fill that knowledge gap, allowing researchers to track marine turtles as they swim from place to place. Learn more: http://worldwildlife.org/stories/tracking-turtles-by-satellite-for-better-conservation WWF places satellite tags on marine turtles in many areas around the world. The information collected from the tags helps us to design better management strategies for their conservation, such as creating marine protected areas for important feeding areas or addressing threats to nesting beaches. Knowledge of marine turtle migration pathways is also important to reduce interaction with fisheries, when turtles too often become victims of bycatch. Sa...

This is a quick view of the Comar SLR200N AIS Marine Tracking Receiver picking up signals at VK2KRR inland location over approximately 400 Km on 29th Feb 2012. The Tropospheric propagation conditions were good on this night. The signals are from ships in Port Phillip Bay area, Melbourne Victoria, Australia. The flashing lights indicate signals received and the lights flash for either Channel A on the left (161.975 MHz) or Channel B on the right (162.025 MHz).
