Tor zur Ostsee

Tor zur Ostsee (Gate to Baltic Sea) is a joint project of ITM and TraDaV which is realized in the context of Lübeck's election to the German City of Science 2012.

Functionality

We created a small web application which displays the current status and position of ships around Lübeck.

It relies on AIS data which is provided by the company Vesseltracker.

Screenshot of the application:

Origin

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.

Usage

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 ;-)
