Marine Cadastre Track Builder

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, NOAA Office for Coastal Management

Overview

This downloadable desktop application converts a collection of point features into a track line. Input data must include date and time values for each point and an identifier to group points in a line. For users of Automatic Identification System (AIS) data from MarineCadastre.gov, the application also offers a function to extract vessel and voyage attributes from related tables for each line. AIS track lines can then be used to generate maps of vessel traffic for transportation analysis and coastal and ocean planning.

Requires ArcGIS 10.1 or later
