 A new name has joined the vessel tracking sector with a product that promises to set new standards in functionality and user-friendliness. 

 
BigOceanData is the new brand from Globavista, the professional vessel tracking and monitoring provider trusted by industry professionals and government agencies alike. 
 
BigOceanData is a completely new service designed to meet the needs of today’s maritime sector: a web-based, full function, premium service that will meet the needs of the industry, all at a highly competitive price.

Accessed via a web browser, its designers have gone to great efforts to ensure that while a wide array of information can be accessed and overlaid on the world map, it always remains easy on the eye and intuitive to operate.
 
With its years of experience and the customer feedback that comes with it, BigOceanData has introduced a number of significant improvements to the standard vessel tracking model.
 
At the top of the list is the fact that, unlike most providers, BigOceanData delivers satellite AIS data as standard. Users have access to full, global, undelayed AIS data, both terrestrial and satellite, regardless of the size of their fleet. This is in recognition both of the falling costs of satellite data and of the belief that no professional monitoring service should offer anything less than a complete global view.
 
The BigOceanData system also uniquely draws on other sources of vessel data to maximise the accuracy of the vessel plot information, such as third-party on-board tracking devices including SSAS and fisheries VMS transponders.
 
“We believe that BigOceanData sets a whole new standard in vessel tracking monitoring,” says BigOceanData Director Steve Jones. “In particular, the technology of satellite AIS tracking is advancing rapidly and we are committed to passing those improvements on to our customer as they happen, ensuring that they always have access to the most accurate data available. We invite all those involved in vessel operations and management to try our free, fully functional, 72-hour free trial and see it in action for themselves.”
