Drafting Route Plan Templates for Ships on the Basis of AIS Historical Data
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 23 December 2019
The paper provides a description of a method of drafting route plan templates on the basis of AIS (automatic identification system) historical data. The first section features a brief background on the problem of drafting route plan templates in the light of international regulations. The main section contains a description of the methods and tools used for processing AIS data into a GRID reference system: ship traffic intensity, average COG (course over ground) and average SOG (speed over ground) as well as route plan templates. The final section includes a presentation of the research method and an analysis of the results, conducted on the basis of maps with charted paths of drafted route plan templates. The summary constitutes a synthesis of general conclusions, the advantages and disadvantages of the solution as well as areas for further research to enhance the solution.
