2015 AIS Data Now Available

We are pleased to announce the release of the 2015 vessel tracking, or AIS, data for the nation. Noteworthy changes with this release include

  • a new and open (CSV - flat file) format
  • identification information for vessels
  • more complete and more accurate description of vessels
  • PDF explaining the AIS vessel type and group codes

In addition, we have added a new Track Builder tool to our collection of AIS tools. Track Builder 3.1 is compatible with ArcGIS 10.x and includes a utility to help convert CSV data into an ArcGIS-compatible format.

In the coming months we will release data for 2016 and 2017, and an ArcGIS Pro compatible Track Builder and Track Counter tool. We will send additional emails as they become available. Please visit our Vessel Traffic Data page for the full suite of products.
