This is the FREE version of Journey Plotter.
It has the same functionality as Journey Plotter, but you will have to put up with interstitial ads.
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.
