Webinar: Vessel Tracking Data Used for Ocean Planning

  • Webinar date: June 2, 3-4 PM EST
  • Presenter(s): Daniel Martin, Stephen Creed, Kyle Ward, Andrea Dransfield

Vessel traffic data, or Automatic Identification System (AIS) data, is collected by the U.S. Coast Guard through an onboard navigation safety device that transmits and monitors the location and characteristics of large vessels in real time. The MarineCadastre.gov project team has worked with the Coast Guard and NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey to repurpose and make available some of the most important data for use in ocean planning applications. This webinar will provide an overview of the data available and examples of how the MarineCadastre.gov AIS data are being used including: scoping wind planning areas, evaluating ship anchorage areas, and changes to the shipping lanes through a National Marine Sanctuary.

In this webinar, participants will:

  • Learn about the variety of vessel-tracking data products and tools and how to access them via MarineCadastre.gov
  • Hear insights from the mid-Atlantic team that has taken the process from one state to the entire region for marine planning applications; and
  • Gain a better understanding of how the products can be applied to a range of ocean-planning applications
