This map is based on the vessels Automatic Identification System (AIS) and is an automatic tracking system used on ships. AIS transceivers automatically broadcast information, such as their position, speed, and navigational status, at regular intervals via a VHF transmitter built into the transceiver. The signals are received by AIS transceivers fitted on other ships or on land based systems, such as VTS systems.
