MarAd Unveils MarView

Monday, October 06, 2008

Information on the condition and performance of the Marine Transportation System – including ports, vessels, waterways and intermodal connections – will be available on a Web-based, data-driven set of tools developed by the MarAd.

The information system, called MarView, provides access to more than 2500 links to transportation data sources, giving statistics on intermodal freight transportation and on trained and licensed mariners.  It provides real-time tracking of vessels, plus physical attributes information on national and international ports, vessels, and related facilities.  MarView provides real time information on waterways and facilities and background facts about domestic and foreign shipbuilding and repair yards.

Access to MarView is granted through a free subscription only. For more information or to subscribe, please visit www.marview.gov.
