Article title

Generating a node in an AIS-based routing graph for improved Estimated Time of Arrival. (Big) Data challenge: using AIS for generating a routing graph


Title variants

Languages of publication


For the international exchange of goods, an exact estimated time of arrival (ETA), especially in case of delays, is of great importance. Using global data of the automatic identification system (AIS) a grid node is generated. The sum of such nodes and their connections form a routing graph. As an example, with one node of in total more than 100,000 nodes it is described how this point gets the maximum vessel length and draft assigned.
