Thank you for participating in the development of the MarineTraffic Voyage Planner and helping make it the most accurate routing tool.
The MarineTraffic Voyage Planner is a novel tool for sea route distance calculation.
What sets this tool apart is the fact that the displayed routes are based on actual voyage data recorded by MarineTraffic and routes curated by our users (you!) as opposed to algorithmic routing that does not respect maritime traffic restrictions, such as Traffic Separation Schemes (TSS), safe waterways, turning points, zones of special interest etc.
We invite you to suggest improvements for all the Port to Port routes and help us make the world's best route planner.
Once the list of the suggested routes has been displayed on your screen (just below the Voyage Planner Toolbox) you can expand any of them by simply clicking on the name of it. Notice the "Improve this Route" option (the suggestion feature is available to all registered users).
Clicking on this option will enable you to edit the suggested route and let us know of it. While in the Edit Mode, the Waypoint markers will change and will also get more dense enabling you to alter any part of the route you think that could be improved.
To make any alterations to the suggested route, simply drag the desired point(s). You can always undo your last edit by clicking on the relevant icon that will appear after moving a point.
When you have performed the edits you wish, click on the "Save Route" button. Your suggestions will be evaluated by a MarineTraffic moderator and, if approved, will replace the suggested route.
You are ready, so start
For the time being you can suggest improvements regarding existing Port-to-Port routes only.
Thank you for your valuable contribution to the MarineTraffic community!
