Busy Saturday morning in the Cromarty Firth
« on: October 10, 2009, 08:33:38 am »
Another beta testing screenshot.

When we drove past the Cromarty Firth yesterday we saw there were 5 oil rigs in for servicing, although only two appear to be transmitting AIS.

Changed, Tracked, Tracking, PE, Status, Callsign, Country Flag, Name, Ship Type, Dest, DOB, DWT, Ln, Bm, Dr, Spd, Crs, Hdg, IMO, MMSI, Lat, Long, Country, Cargo Type, ETA, GPS Bow, GPS Stern, GPS Port, GPS Starboard, TypePosFix, DTE Flag, Nav Status, Rate of Turn, Pos Acc

I've suggested adding Distance, so you can sort by distance from home location.

The list looks good!
Distance is nice too; except for plotting ships, AIS is also nice for DX-ing (Tropo Ducts)  ;-)

btw: can it also decode the typical inland-ais messages??

Currently decodes message types:
01 - Position Report with SOTDMA
02 - Position Report with SOTDMA
03 - Position Report with ITDMA
04 - Base Station Report
05 - Ship static and voyage related data

That's not what I'd understand as a message type 8 - http://www.aisparser.com/sdk/structaismsg__8.html

But it is likely that other message types may need decoding.  The most obvious one is message type 9 - http://www.aisparser.com/sdk/structaismsg__9.html

I'm no expert on AIS messages though :(

It is a SP "translated" type 8 msg, not in raw format.

I better hide somewhere in a dark corner, not being an expert, not even a novice in this kind of things..

-Hi There
Is this screenshot via a network or real time via a antenna? if so what range are you getting?
Cheers

It's taking a feed from ShipPlotter to simulate hardware.

This is why I like ShipTrax.  It shows me when the Cromarty Firth is really busy with ships, so I can grab my camera/binoculars and head out for an afternoon of ship-spotting!!!
