What is the fuss all about? I can clearly see whether a ship is in coming that will incite me to take my bicycle and make a ride to the river. That's the only thing I need (Except for the photographs, but that is another discussion topic).

Yes, that's how I use it. If I see the tugs starting to move, I know it's time to leave home for ships sailing from Immingham, if I see the vessel rounding Spurn Head, it's time to leave for incoming. Gone are the days of hanging around on cold riverbanks waiting to see if anything moved!!!!

that's fine, but when you are logging the actual arrival and departure times it is NOT fine.

All I am trying to find out is if MT have changed their rules and standards for free users.

Are you trying to establish port productivity in combination with actual load or discharge rates?

Another Marine traffic question

The aircraft carrier anchored in the Solent is showing as the Prince of Wales on MT but some facebook images show her as the Queen Elizabeth, can anyone confirm which she is?

Regards

Bob

Bob,

HMS Queen Elizabeth was anchored off Stokes Bay for two weeks quarantine prior to going on deployment. HMS Prince of Wales was alongside in Portsmouth when I saw them on Thursday.

I found the arrival dates and times very useful, and not to discover load or discharge times.

It seems you need to have 400+ photos (plus one or two other caveats) for a free subscription, although that might change also.

MT are being a bit mean spirited here, and having used photos from hundreds of people to get where they are today have now limited some functionality that some people found useful.

Thing is what comes next?

Daft thing is, if you buy the 2.99 phone app you still get the waypoint data!

Still, for those who feel strongly enough it might be worth complaining to MT and threatening to withdraw the rights for them to use your photos.

Commercial rates for the use of photographic material range from 10 and 60. Just because this is a hobby for many people shouldn't mean we're sold short.

Just wondering whether one of PoW's boats was out in the Solent producing the AIS trace seen on  Marine Traffic?

I mentioned that the Marine Traffic photographs were a different subject.

I just came across this prime example:

https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:923592/mmsi:-7525827/imo:7525827/vessel:TRIAS

They also often label a photo a specific ship with the name that it had been carrying before.
I have asked them about that and it seems to be related to what the AIS signal is telling them. I have never uploaded a photo there, but is the info to the photo out of control from the photographer.

Just to indicate that I am not prepared to pay anything for their services.
