This web-based tool enables users to interactively download U.S. vessel traffic data across user-defined geographies and time periods. It also provides quick visualizations of vessel traffic densities and patterns. Vessel traffic data are currently available for 2017 to 2022. Subsequent years will be added as these data become available and are processed.


  • Provides a view of vessel traffic patterns
  • Functions as a “clip and ship” tool for AIS point data
  • Tailors data access to user’s area and time period of interest
