• 2011 Atlantic All Other Vessel Density

    Updated: Dec 24, 2013

    Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) are a navigation safety device that transmits and monitors the location and characteristics of many vessels in U.S. and international waters in real-time. This dataset represents the density of “all other” vessel traffic in 2011 for the US Atlantic from vessels with AIS transponders in 100 meter grid cells. All other vessels are those not considered Cargo, Fishing, Passenger, Pleasure Craft, Sailing, Tanker, Tug, or Towing. The dataset is best interpreted using a high to low density scale and does not represent actual vessel counts.
