AIS and ADS-B: Share your data


Thank you to all who share AIS and ADS-B data with us. It is very much appreciated.


Sharing ADS-B Data

Plane Finder relies on data from aviation enthusiast base stations around the world.

We have invested in server equipment that makes sharing with us easy.

If you have a base station of any type and want to see your data on Plane Finder please see the simple instructions below and let us know that you've set it up. Alternatively contact us and we'll respond straight away.

Please note that we do not use data shared via the internet sharing facility built into Plane Plotter software as this is against the terms of the license agreement and also would not be fair on those sharing the data just for use within the Plane Plotter community.

Instructions

If you don't already use it download the latest version of COAA's Plane Plotter software from here

(Please note that we have been working with COAA and the latest version simplifies the sharing process).

We suggest you use the free trial first to make sure you are happy with the results.

It's very simple but if you do get stuck there is an excellent FAQ site here or alternatively please contact us.

Once it's set up go to Options-->Sharing-->Setup and fill in as per the image below.

Then just let us know you've done it.


Sharing AIS Data

Ship Finder relies on data from enthusiast owned and professional base stations around the world.

We have invested in server equipment that makes sharing with us easy.

If you have a base station and want to see your data on Ship Finder please contact us as we'll send you simple instructions on how to do this.

Please note that we do not use data shared via the internet sharing facility built into Ship Plotter software as this is against the terms of the license agreement and also would not be fair on those sharing the data just for use within the Ship Plotter community.

Instructions

Our preferred method is to connect using COAA's Ship Plotter software. If you don't use it you can get it here

We suggest you use the free trial first to make sure you are happy with the results.

Once it's set up go to goto Options-->Sharing-->Setup and fill in as per the image below.

Then just let us know you've done it so that we can set up the new feed within Ship Finder.

Alternatively we can also receive your AIS data direct by sending it to us over TCP/IP.

AIS data needs to be sent to ais.shipfinder.co.uk 4001 (UDP or TCP). (IP Address is 109.200.19.151).

If you need some software to help please take a look here.

It's not essential but we'd appreciate it if you tell us too so that we know whose data we are using.

If you have any questions, need more info, or need help on any of the above then please don't hesitate to contact us and we'll do our best to help.
