Transas Marine has released a new version of its FleetView Online web-based SSAS-tracking service.


New FleetView Online version boasts improved user interface, object overlay and chart navigation controls. Object overlay on the charts have been updated to enhance visual appearance and improve user experience at lower scales.
 


Previous toolbars have been removed and navigation controls added to the chart display to improve viewing ability.  A 'Google' style map slider bar has been added allowing scaling through the charts in three ways: zoom slider, mouse wheel scroll or manual selection from lower task bar.  


 
Vessel information panel on the left of the display can be hidden, providing a full screen chart display for presentation views. Layer options for ”show graticule” and ”show gauge” chart settings have also been implemented.



Significant improvements has been done for port service functionality. With this option ports icons are displayed directly on the chart display. Additional detailed information is listed in the port information window. As usual, ports can be selected from the list where users can zoom into the port location.


Daily Position Report (DPR) messages can be now forwarded in NMEA-based format which makes it easier to integrate FleetView Online data with a shipping company’s monitoring program.


Newly developed ”vessel on map” functionality allows to include a small PNG image showing vessels location in positon reports and SSAS alerts email and track history for the previous week.


In addition, object clustering in the AIS data has been added to improve display at larger scales.
