Web VTS Mate

Web VTS Mate (WVM) is a simple web-based marine traffic monitoring solution that displays real-time AIS data and is ideal for small marinas or organizations who simply want to view AIS traffic on an electronic chart or map. WVL receives AIS data from the AIS Server and provides a graphic display of AIS targets onto electronic charts and maps. Ships equipped with AIS transponders are displayed on the chart as AIS targets with relevant information displayed in the information section. You can select an AIS target from the list or chart to view the ship's details. WVM can generate enter/exit or min/max speed alerts and send notification emails and/or SMS. WVM is designed for small, low-budget companies who need a simple marine traffic service with basic functions and a multi-user web interface.
