Sharing AIS data with ShipXplorer

ShipXplorer Coverage Map

Three months after we installed the first AIS receiver on a roof in Tampa, USA, we launched, the industry's most innovative ship tracker, making it possible for anyone with an AIS receiver to share data with us and expand our coverage around the world. In this blog, we explain how one can start sharing data with ShipXplorer by either applying for a unit or building your own.
