The mapping can be used to analyse shipping patterns and trends at differing scales, says the Canadian provider of Satellite AIS data.

According to exactEarth, data on shipping density can be useful in assessing ship strike risk, developing mitigation measures, analysing the efficiency of shipping routes and for investigation into shipping activity around sensitive areas such as the nearly 6,000 Marine Protected Areas across the world.

exactAIS Density Maps will be offered in both a pre-generated or customisable version to suit users’ needs and areas of interest.

“We have seen a steady increase in the amount of customers using our global data feed or archived data to create a series of density maps to be used to perform in-depth vessel pattern analysis,” said Bruce Winter, product manager of Data Services at exactEarth. “In an effort to provide the most complete shipping data solutions available on the market, exactEarth is excited to be rolling out this new Density Map product to aid in this critical process.”
