AISHub is a FREE AIS data sharing service which provides access to real time ship positions for vessel tracking systems...
AIS vessel tracking has been the mariner's most significant development in navigation safety since the introduction of the radar. AIS tracking system was originally developed as collision avoidance tool which enables commercial vessels to ‘see' each other more clearly in any conditions and to improve the helmsman's information about the surrounding environment. AIS does this by continuously transmitting vessels' position, identity, speed and course, along with other relevant information, to all other AIS equipped vessels within range. Combined with a shore station, this system also offers port authorities and maritime safety bodies the ability to manage maritime traffic and reduce the hazards of marine navigation.
