exactEarth Announces the Availability of New Online Data Galleries PDF Print E-mail
Written by exactEarth   
17 June 2013


Cambridge, ON- June 17, 2013— exactEarth Ltd., the leading provider of Satellite AIS data services, announced today the release of a set of web galleries, to provide an online environment for the exploration of Satellite AIS data. Through this new interactive experience, users are given access to selected subsets from the exactAIS® 3-year global archive through interactive maps, sample web services for use in GIS platforms, and downloadable sample files.

exactEarth Horizon™ (http://horizon.exactearth.com) provides an interactive map of a sampled single day’s position reports for the whole globe allowing users to gain an understanding of the breadth of information available from the exactAIS data service. The exactEarth Gallery™ (http://gallery.exactearth.com) provides sample maps, OGC certified web services, and downloadable files from exactAIS Archive™ and exactAIS Arctic Archive™ including historical points and tracks, as well as density maps. For Esri users specifically, the Gallery is replicated on ArcGIS Online at https://exactais.maps.arcgis.com/home/index.html
These galleries offer the ability to explore sampled ship movement information with the full AIS collected attributes available such as heading, course over ground, and flag. The vessel density mapping featured showcases how it is possible to use the AIS data to analyze shipping patterns and trends at differing scales while the data from exactAIS Arctic Archive gives a complete look into the vessel traffic patterns of this remote region.
“We have seen a steadily growing awareness of Satellite AIS and the benefits of receiving global ship movements over the past few years and earlier this year we released our ShipMaps Website (www.shipmaps.com) to highlight the growing uses of Satellite AIS data” commented Graham Stickler, Global Marketing Director at exactEarth. “We have had a very positive response to this site, but we recognise that there are many more potential uses for Satellite AIS data, especially as our global archive grows. We have released these galleries to now provide an interactive environment where the actual data can be explored in more detail and to allow interested parties to experiment and see for themselves how such data may help across the whole maritime operations, analysis and planning domain.”
