Unusual to see a ship with a destination of Dornoch Firth.   Should be right outside my window by tomorrow morning!!

Maybe they'll be working on the lighthouse tomorrow.

You see inland waters ais in S.E. Netherlands, from the south Pantha Rei1 (OMEK) from Czech, Dunav (YP2591) from Romania, Hollands Diep (PE4563) tanker from NL and Jadi (PD6708) from NL.
The "middenlimburg" icon is from my own ais receiving station.

The start of the cruising season at Invergordon.

Now that's what I call a real "BUDGET" cruise.  I'm off to Invergordon to see this one, a mighty impressive ship (http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/myalbum/photo-833598-AIDALUNA) by all accounts.

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4074/4798780304_d06891a51e_b.jpg)

Although, on a more serious note, maybe the database of photos that will be used by ShipTrax could do with a tidy-up to remove these sort of photos from appearing in ShipTrax when it's released.
Title: Re: Interesting Ships
Post by: jannuh on July 16, 2010, 03:06:10 pm
It's the question if A.n. can show a lot of photos in the future.

Photographers who did sent in photos last years are deleting their photos/accounts in a rapid tempo; see the shipspotting forum, various posts last weeks.
Title: Re: Interesting Ships
Post by: AirNav Development on July 16, 2010, 08:01:49 pm
Jannuh: maybe you are reading the "frustrated forum" too much.

What you mention is false - shipspotting.com has almost 1 million photos on its database and ShipTrax doesn't show the photos but a thumbnail of them. Please pay attention to the real facts before making such statements.

What you mention is false - shipspotting.com has almost 1 million photos on its database and ShipTrax doesn't show the photos but a thumbnail of them.

And usefully provides an automatic link to the full size image on shipspotting.com.  A very similar approach to that used in Radarbox and the link to the full-size photo on airliners.net.

The Queen's summer holiday cruise - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-10739188

Wonder if they'll leave ther AIS transponder turned on when the Queen is on-board.  Are there any special exceptions for when they want to keep the location of a ship "Private"?

Hi

I have noticed this one a few times today while checking the ship ais. First saw him in the Pentland Firth early today.

And good to see proof that the ShipTrax hardware and software can process Class B ships :)

Here's some recent screenshots.  Very addictive!!

My setup is the beta ShipTrax hardware receiver using a £30 discone mounted in my loft.  That gives me a 15-20 mile range for ships, and over 60 miles for SAR helicopters.

Great shots of Sydney.  Currently showing over 11,000 ships on the beta network.

Here's a shot of the Solent, showing a combination of ships from both the ShipTrax and ShipPlotter networks.

For anyone watching the Scottish Open (golf), this one should appear on Sky Sport 1 any moment.

(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5112/5915158695_6d7f47a9e0_o_d.png)

Although even though it's bright sunshine and 24c here, for some reason they've suspended play for the golf!!!

Wonderful!!!   One of the many tall ships heading up the west coast of Scotland at this time, heading for various ports en-route to Shetland.  Should be a fine collection of these great ships at Ullapool today and tomorrow.

ShipTrax beta testing continues.  A new ship into Invergordon over the weekend, the E-Ship 1.  Rotorsail powered cargo ship used to deliver wind turbines to the many wind-farms being developed in the area.  See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-Ship_1
