This is online live ship tracking and monitoring system based on AIS (Automatic Identification System) for all seas.
GemiTrafik.com's goal is to online live monitoring and track ships for amateur seafarers and sea enthusiasts for FREE.
GemiTrafik.com is a Turkish partipiciant of the international Marintraffic.com project. AIS signals are collected by amateur AIS receiver stations all over the world and sent to Marintraffic servers, the signals processed there are processed on a map and presented for users via GemiTrafik.com and similar sites.
The coverage of the AIS systems may vary widely depending on the environmental conditions and location in which the receiving station is located, the antenna height and the quality of the electronic equipment.
The coverage of an average terrestrial AIS receiver station may be in the range of 15-20 Nautical miles (25-35km). An antenna height good and well-equipped station can provide coverage up to 60-70 Nautical Miles (110-130km) radius.
The AIS receiver stations that collect information from the sea and the vessels are all internally connected systems 24/7. They transmit all AIS data they collect in their territories to the main servers of Marinetraffic.com from the internet. This information will be processed from here and shaped to be seen on google maps, and it will be published via web sites again. All this takes a few seconds from the time the gathers publish their own information via the AIS system. Of course there can always be infrastructure-induced delays. When you click on the icon of a vessel you will see a small window that will tell you how many minutes ago the information was taken from that vessel.
As GemiTrafik.com, we are not involved in any infrastructure activities (signal collection, processing, sharing, etc.) for monitoring and publishing AIS information from Turkey.
All AIS information you will see in our application and / or on our website comes from abroad from this international project. No information / signal is native source. We do not know where and how this information comes from related sources.
ATTENTION !: It is not appropriate to use this system for navigational purposes.
