Amazing Tracking View of All the World’s Ships In Motion
In an effort to keep our clients up to date on the latest industry news we occasionally come across an article of worthy mention and like to share our findings. This article is no exception.
Have you ever wondered how many ships are on the open sea? The shipping industry is incredibly active and we discovered an interesting visually interactive snap-shot that will put the vastness of the seafaring industries into perspective.

In Paris last November there was a climate deal that was implemented which did not include cargo ships. The author of the article made note that,
“shipping emits roughly as much climate pollution as the entire country of Germany and more pollution that the 160 least-polluting countries to sign the agreement, combined.”
While Jaguar Fueling supports the effort to decrease global emissions, this article, in particular is more about showcasing a neat visualization tool brought to you by the researchers at University College London and the digital journalism studio Kiln. The conclusions you draw from this visualization on the issue of global warming, we will leave to you. Our purpose in sharing is to show you the immense traffic on the ocean highways.
