Developer's description:ShippingExplorer is a feature packed application that will help you track vessels with live data. It displays all vessels in range at their exact position on your favorite map. This utility is designed for a very practical purpose, but its GUI is still quite appealing and manages to provide a lot of information in such a way that it is easy to find and read by any user. ShippingExplorer will show you when your ship will arrive at route points and how much it will cost and how much fuel will approximately be consumed. With in-depth analysis capabilities, alerts and several types of maps included, ShippingExplorer is definitely one of the best choices for those who need to follow a cargo to its destination.
E-Mail and SMS Alerts:
You draw a zone on the map and once the specified ship enters that zone you'll be alerted via e-mail or SMS on your cell phone.
Track- and Port-History of a Ship:
We record every step a ship makes so that you can later see when and where a ship was. Dozens of Filters Filters help you to see only ships of a special kind on your map. Many more dynamic filters were included such as the "Destination"-filter ("Which vessels are going to Hamburg?"). These and many more filters can be found right next to the map.
You can see which ships came in and went out on a specific day.
Names and Direction Vectors:
You can optionally view the map with the ship's names displayed next to them. Additionally you can display Direction Vectors on the vessels to see where they're heading.
Different Maps and Satellite Images:
With ShippingExplorer you have many map services to choose from. You can use Google, Microsoft, Yahoo or use our native map. Some services also provide you with satellite images.
Information About a Ship:
Selecting a ship on the map will show you the live data the ship transmits about itself such as its Size, Type, Speed, Destination and many more. If available, you'll also see a photo of that vessel. Advanced Information In addition to the live data we also provide further information about the selected ship. See when the ship was built, who operates it and much more.
With ShippingExplorer you can see detailed statistics of a port. When is the best time and best day to arrive at Hamburg? or What kind of ships are there most?
With the ruler you can quickly measure a distance between two points or see how many ships are in a specific radius around you.
Speed Graph of Ships:
When viewing the Track of a ship you can also see when a ship slowed down or stopped with the new handy Speed Graph.
