New advancements made in the ShipView 1.3 release provide users with validation tools to detect data quality anomalies immediately.
Maritime authorities are increasingly interested in identifying abnormal vessel behaviour and anomalies. As the world's leading provider of vessel movement information, exactEarth now begins the introduction of services that not only summarize vessel information but also determine the validity of vessel messages and analyses behavious and movements. exactEarth Knowledge Libraries are available both as standalone web services and an add-on to exactEarth ShipView™, allowing authorities to come to the aid of vessels in distress faster and deal with illicit activity sooner to protect borders and save lives. Using dozens of new vessel attributes not available from other AIS data providers and advanced analytics, authorities are able to define vessels of interest based on unique mandates, area of responsibility, vessel population and operational requirements.
The first Knowledge Library (KL) released, Data Quality (DQ) focuses on validating the information being transmitted by the vessel through the detection of data-entry errors, possible GPS issues and probable vessel safety issues. The DQ KL uses advanced algorithms to detect false vessel information allowing users to know immediately when something does not add up. This saves valuable time to react faster to a vessel in trouble and provides authorities with insight into vessels that may be deliberately transmitting false information.
Data is crosschecked with our extensive AIS archive, new analytics engine as well as the new exactEarth Ship Database (DB) to ensure users are equipped with the most accurate vessel information possible. The new exactShipDB is also available for purchase as an add-on to exactEarth ShipView and encompasses extended vessel stats, vessel capabilities, ownership information as well as name and insurance history. This provides users an extra level of information needed to make knowledgeable decisions whether it is at port looking for blacklist vessels that have changed their name or out at sea tracking down the owners and responsible parties when a vessel is involved in an accident.
With the new Knowledge Libraries coming online along with the extended exactShipDB, authorities can be confident they are receiving the best in terms of data quality as all false information is automatically highlighted. exactEarth is defining, and ushering in, the next generation of vessel monitoring solutions which allow analysis into position, time, and knowledge. Vessel behaviour analysis can be completed with ease to investigate suspicious behaviour and better contribute to overall maritime security in your waters.
