PortVision has shared its projections for the top vessel-tracking trends that it believes will have the greatest impact on the maritime industry during 2014.
On 8 November, users of EMSA’s Integrated Maritime Data Environment (IMDatE) met to give feedback on the integrated maritime services being delivered by EMSA. The new IMDatE platform can combine different types of maritime data coming from EMSA applications, as well as new sources such as satellite AIS and data provided by end-users. The resulting services are specifically tailored to user needs.
