VISIR is a service providing optimized nautical routes in the Mediterranean Sea. The optimization regards total navigation time, keeping into account safety of navigation. The computation of the routes depends on model forecast of sea-state. The user can specify departure date and time, departure and arrival location, vessel type, and other parameters. The routes are displayed on top of wave forecasts, superimposed on a Google-map.
VISIR is executed by:
Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC). CMCC is responsible for the research activity, the distribution of ocean model products, the model behind VISIR, and the realization of the User Interface;
Links s.p.a., which has realized the system for web publication of the route information and ocean forecasts.
