The full version of Google Earth integration does not contain a delay. All AIS data is shown in real time.
Moreover there is more information about the vessels such as IMO number, length, beam, draught, destination port, etc.
The full version is available for subscribers of our Coastal Account or Global Account.
Google Earth is a browser for satellite maps with very good navigation. For this reason, we believe that it is the best tool for browsing AIS vessel movement data in real time. The satellite maps are so detailed that you can see every single container at the harbour in Hamburg for example. If you do not have Google Earth installed on your computer yet, please follow the instructions below to do so.
Google Earth is provided free of charge for personal use. It is compatible with the Windows, Linux and Mac OS operating systems. For commercial use, there are professional versions which you can buy from Google. More information can be obtained under the following link:
