At the moment they just indicate that there is a thumbnail photo of that ship downloaded to the PC.

Another shot of the Irish Sea and Isle of Man area.

Great screenshot Allocator - really busy.

Just caught this lone tanker "swimming with the dolphins" at Chanonry Point!!  Good to see the NASA satellite map server is responding better now.

With EGPE in shot, it made me think.  Would be great to combine Radarbox and ShipTrax on one map!!

I'm sure that it could be done :-)

I keep forgetting about the satellite download!

When You have PlanePlotter and Shipplotter it can be done, application is called CombiPlotter at Coaa website.


For me not really usable, as map scale of spotting planes and ships is very different..

Probably the busiest I've ever seen the Cromarty Firth.  A mix of oil tankers, cargo vessels delivering wind-farm turbines, and pipe laying vessels being "re-filled" at Evanton.  A good indication of how busy the oil and renewables industries are at the moment.  And with the Nigg Yard finally promising to generate 2000 jobs, it can only get busier ;)
