Journey Plotter

Journey Plotter is an application for visualizing journeys of Royal Navy vessels of the World War 1-era, or Arctic voyages of United States vessels from the mid 19th century onwards.

For a given day, you can see the ship's position and read the log-book entries that describe activities on board.

Select from hundreds vessels, the number is still increasing, from the following services:
- Royal Navy
- United States Navy
- United States Revenue Service/Coast Guard
- United States Coast & Geodetic Survey
- United States Fish Commission

Journey Plotter makes use of data from original Royal Navy and United States log-books that has been digitised and then made available by Naval-History.Net (http://www.naval-history.net).

The log-books have been transcribed by volunteers on the Old Weather (http://www.oldweather.org) project and edited into a more readable form by volunteers on the Naval-History.Net project.

Many thanks to Gordon Smith for graciously letting us use the information available from Naval-History.Net.
And thanks, of course, to all those volunteers who transcribed and edited the log-books.

A journey can consist of large amounts of data, so it's advisable to use a WiFi connection if you're being charged for your data use.

A word on the location permissions.
Journey Plotter isn't using your position in any form, but this permission is required for Google Maps.
