Rate of Turn Feature Added to our Live Map Vessels

Just added a visualisation of the "Rate of Turn" feature for vessels that are turning on the Live Map. Simply enable the Projected Course (available under Filters within the Live Map Toolbar) and voilà!

    I know programmers get a kick out of new whiz tricks like this.  After all, I spent a part of my life doing the same!  It does seem however that vessels in my area tend to go in straight lines followed by adjustments in course to travel in more straight lines.  None of the vessels on my live map show as travelling in curved or circular paths.

    I think I can speak for many photographers. as one large group that contributes to this site, and we would like to see features that were present on the old site and disappeared with the current incarnation.

    For instance, on the Photos of [Ships] or Photos by [Photographer] pages, I would like to see a return of the following features:

    For example, on my own photos page: http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/photos/by/copyright:M.L.%20Jacobs

    I would like to be able to search for and sort (ascending or descending) by:

         Exact or Approximate name of vessel (eg. all vessels beginning with 'Smit')

         Type of vessel

         Place of Photo

         Date of Photo

         Date Uploaded

         Page number

    All of this information is in the database.  All that is needed is a simple form to do the search, across the entire database or within a specific photographer's photos, or within one ship that might have potentially 200+ photos.  The existing slider bars appear to serve little value other than to use a 'neat' coding gadget.

    Also, fix the 'Rating' formula or get rid of it.  It appears to be a random presentation of photos.  I thought it might represent votes times number of stars but I might be confusing that with 'Popularity', which for some reason only appears on Photos by Ship and NOT on Photos by Photographer.

    In summary, my point is why not fix some of the outstanding issues (I have one ticket #662 open since November 2013) on this topic).

    regards,

    Malcolm

    Hello Malcolm and thank you for your comment.

    Although this is not the place to discuss the issue you are raising, I can tell you we are well aware of these issues and we are now in the process of amending some of them and adding or reinstating some functionality.

    Filters and sorting certainly can and will be added to the photographer pages. 

    We are also in the process of revamping the voting system. The most prominent scenario is a voting system like the Facebook "Like", meaning we will only count upvotes and that will be the only metric used. There are still a lot of considerations though, like popularity indexes and others.

    We will be putting out announcements as this project continues to evolve.

    Great website, but now I can't get detailed information on ships as before. Just installed MarineTraffic on my Windows 8,1 laptop and it works ok , but mostly I use it on my mobile.

    Best regards

    Good website, but you can change the way of checking the ratings. It would be better if showed below photo instantly, not by moving the slider over the photo.

    Would be nice to be able to turn the predictor on with the ROT off.....

    Richard Viggiano

    The curved predictor line is a bit goofy, why not use arrows on the end of the predictor line to show the direction of ROT like MaxSea does?

    See it here: http://www.maxsea.com/Portals/0/Landing%20Pages%20Illustrations/AIS_ARPA/AIS_ARPA_Screenshot_2.jpg

    I watched a sailing vessel in my fleet making a passage today and it was never showing a straight predictor as most sailboats tend to yaw around.

    You could even make the ROT arrows grow in relation to degree of ROT.....

    Thus curved the speed vector shall help navigators using AIS only to predict the course of collision with other vessels mush better! Great functionality Marine Traffic! Thank you for being No.1!
