Live Map is the key feature of MarineTraffic. It enables you to move around the globe with ease and directly track down any vessel that may be of interest to you with efficiency. It is periodically auto-refreshed (you can also manually refresh it) to include all the latest information regarding the positions of any vessel.
You have the ability to zoom out and get a general overview of the world or to zoom in and get a more detailed view of a certain area of interest.
When zoomed out, the Live Map displays an overview of the global traffic.
