Germany’s best known resource for marine traffic


Here you can follow and observe ship positions around the world via the ship’s radar. Not only do you receive information about the different ship positions, but you are also provided with ship-specific details. A free offer that is especially fascinating for boat enthusiasts.

In order to be able to receive the transmitted data, API stations are required which not only collect the data, but also convert it and subsequently pass it on to the various devices.

Of course, there are ships that can not be found on the map. If there is no API station nearby, the data can not be collected and thus not forwarded. The advantage is that every user can support the project independently:

Simply install an API station at home so the data can be collected and subsequently processed. If you live in an area where ships are scarce, you can even request the API device for free.

Finally, the project lives on new stations, so that more data can be collected and processed further. Are you unsure if you get such a device for free, you should ask and try your luck.
