    Re: look into marinetraffic.com

    Marinetraffic.com is one of several such sites. Others include: vesseltracker.com, aislive.com and shipais.com.

    Although to the casual observer it may serve as little more than a time-killing curiosity, these sites are marketing their data to shipping interests who are eager for live data. (Most shipping companies already have other sources of live data on their own ships.) For example, a blog on marketing for the shipping industry just posted on the value of these sites to sales efforts:

    Additionally, I imagine these data streams are already in use by government policy makers on a wide variety of fronts.
