Ship location

Use this tool to find locations of ships by date and/or spatial area. Most recent positions are recorded every minute whilst older voyages vary from every 5 minutes to 30 seconds.

The positions will be extracted from GPS data from Underway track data (from 7-Jan-1986 13:05 to 30-Sep-2023 09:16 UT). It does not include the near real-time data which has not been quality controlled.
