The first version of the all-new MarineTraffic Voyage Planner is here!
The MarineTraffic Voyage Planner displays suggested (optimal and alternative) sea routes based on the extensive amount of actual vessel routes which are constantly being recorded to our database. This way, you can plan with accuracy and decide efficiently!
The fact that all the results are based on actual routes is the key difference between the MarineTraffic Voyage Planner and other tools as the latter ones are heavily based on routing algorithms instead. These algorithms often fail to take into account important factors such as Traffic Separation Schemes (TSS), recommended paths, zones of special interest, safe waterways, turning points etc.
Most importantly though, we are counting on you to make the tool even better and improve the results even further!
Bearing in mind that the Voyage Planner tool is work-in-progress, feel free to share your feedback on the accuracy of the displayed results, the functionality of the tool and suggest improvements to the routes - your contribution is more than welcome!
(Note that, at this stage, the tool is limited to distance calculation with more functionality to be added.)
