Two vital tools of everyday reporting here at Splash have joined forces.
MarineTraffic, the AIS vessel tracking service, has started supplying geographical positioning data to the Equasis project, a European Commission initiative providing detailed information on all commercial vessels.
“MarineTraffic’s vision is to make the maritime ecosystem more efficient and transparent. The Equasis project was established with a very similar vision – we are delighted to be partnering with such a likeminded initiative,” said Argyris Stasinakis, a partner at MarineTraffic.
Readers can hover their mouse over any vessel names that appear in Splash reports to access details of the ship, thanks to a partnership between this site and MarineTraffic. Equally, Splash reporters access Equasis daily to find vessel information.
