What is it about?

AIS Radar displays AIS (Automatic Identification System) data received from marine AIS transponders/receivers such as the ExNC 101, Weatherdock easyAIS or Digital Yacht, over a WiFi network. For AIS devices without built-in WiFi support, an external serial-to-WiFi adapter such as the SEAMate1A® Lite, the Brookhouse iMux, the Roving Networks RN-370 or the Digi Connect® Wi-SP can be used. Alternatively, the application can display AIS data received from public internet AIS feeds such as the San Francisco Exploratorium.
