This remarkable animated timelapse shows a week of ship traffic on the seven seas, as seen from space. The incredible video highlights the vibrant lanes of shipping transport that make our modern civilization possible. The vessel movements were captured using state-of-the-art terrestrial and space-borne AIS technology from FleetMon and its partner Luxspace. The records cover the world’s merchant fleet with some 100,000 cargo ships, tankers, ferries, cruise ships, yachts and tugs. FleetMon provides advanced fleet monitoring services, software APIs, reports and analyses of maritime traffic data. The inset shows live monitoring with the FleetMon Explorer software.
