Tor zur Ostsee
We created a small web application which displays the current status and position of ships around Lübeck.
Screenshot of the application:
Our web application is strongly inspired by MarineTraffic.com which is a project aiming to provide a world wide live ship map based on AIS data.
Before you run the application, make sure that you create a configuration file named 'config.js' in folder '/js/. For your convenience, we added a default configuration file '/js/config.js.default' which may be used as basis.
Due to the contract with our provider of AIS data we may not publicise the actual data. A complete installation of the system will be shown in Lübeck in 2012.
We aim to also include free AIS data sources in the application. Stay tuned ;-)
