COUNTRYMAN & McDANIEL

SHIPPING GUIDES LIMITED

For maritime maps, atlases and other navigational publications, plus access to online information gathered by Shipping Guides Limited during its 40+ years experience publishing specialised port information, via their findaport.com portal.
THE AISLIVE.COM WEBSITE

This has got to be one of the most useful maritime websites on the internet. Here you can see EXACTLY where ships are (at this moment !) in the major shipping zones of Europe, America and partially Asia too. You have to register, but it's free. Not only radar maps showing what ships are where, but by clicking on the vessel on the screen, you get all the data about the ship - where it's heading, speed, size, type- AND ALL LIVE ! With some of the vessels you even get a photo of it. With major ports (like Rotterdam) you can see the last 5 hour history of vessel movements, condensed into a minute.
THE WORLD SHIP SOCIETY

The world's largest society for ship enthusiasts, with meetings around the world, great publications and a real home for anyone interested in maritime and naval history
