Historical AIS Data Services

Historical AIS Data Services

We have access to historical AIS data going as far back as 2009. For any particular vessel this will show port calls and, when underway, the vessel’s:

    • MMSI
    • Status
    • Lat Lon position
    • Speed
    • Heading
    • Plus a time stamp (UTC) for each position fix.

Additional information such as the vessel type, cargo and flag may also be available, depending on what was transmitted by the vessel’s transponder at the time.

As well as searching for specific vessels, searches can also be targeted based on parameters such as:

    • Specific areas – defined by Lat Lon
    • Specific times – single point or defined period
    • Ports – over a stated time frame
    • Vessel size
    • Vessel type
    • Cargo carried

Precise searches can be easily constructed through a combination of factors. For an example area, time, location, vessel type and size can all be entered to gain a very specific view of what was operating in a certain place over a certain time.
