Abstract:

Ship position data from a satellite-based Automatic Identification System (AIS) were obtained jointly by PacIOOS (J. Potemra), SOEST/ORE of the University of Hawaii (E. Roth), and the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument (PNMN) (D. Graham) through a one-time purchase from ORBCOMM LLC. The purchase agreement was made in late 2012 and was for a 30-by-30 degree section of historical AIS data that included the region of the Mariana Islands. The data include AIS long and unchecked reports for a one year period: August 2011 through mid-August 2012. The raw, monthly GPS files were locally converted to NetCDF for the PacIOOS data servers. Due to vendor constraints, release of the raw data is limited.

Purpose: PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.
