Anyone can track ships
In the past we used to look longingly at the cruise ships at the harbor and wished to be a guest on the ship. Where all the ships came from and where they were going remained mostly unknown. The ships were followed with the naked eye until they disappeared on the horizon. After that, the ships were no longer visible to the human eye, but the ship radar had them firmly on the radar screen. A few years ago, ship radar was a well-kept secret and not everyone had access to the data. So only a few people were able to track ships and find out the current ship positions. Fortunately, nowadays we have the possibility to locate and track all ships worldwide with the ship radar at the click of a mouse.
In the map below you can find a radar map with all ships. Just click on the yellow button to activate the map. If the yellow button is not visible yet, please be patient for a few seconds, as in this case the map is still loading. The following map is obtained from marinetraffic.com.
