Port History shown when accessing photos
« on: August 26, 2016, 11:38:53 AM »
Good afternoon,

I was looking at the port history element which is displayed when a particular photo has been selected and this seems to be out of date in a number of cases (i.e. not updated since April and the ship is still trading in areas with good AIS coverage).

I may have missed something discussed in a previous forum subject, if so apologies.

Has anyone else noticed this please and has there been an explanation?

Many thanks,

Best regards to all,

Tom

Tom,

In all honesty I wouldn't pay any attention whatsoever to the port history and AIS information contained on shipspotting.com. It was set up by the site owner several years ago and, as far as I know, never got beyond the beta stage.

There are far better web resources for ship tracking information.

Cheers Phil,

I usually looked at this facility when other sources did not provide the information on a specific ship as an additional resource.   Most of my interest is to provide voyage details for my photos taken on trips and often not researched until several weeks after.  Most of the sites I use are limited in their historical content, but that is probably available at an extra charge.  I upload my own AIS data (for Lyme Bay) to Liverpool as their historical info is more easily found.

Many thanks for your speedy reply,

Best regards

Tom
