This Project investigates the use of tracking systems on fishing vessels with the aim of developing an alternative for portable and accessible use.
Fishing vessels use a standard tracking system which allows them to transmit a lot of data about the vessel which can be viewed by other ships and stations situated along the coast line. The data is more commonly used by larger vessels as it is mandatory.
This project was developed to provide an open source solution for smaller vessels and leisure users by acquiring the data transmitted and displaying it in a user friendly way on multiple devices. New technology was used to potentially expand the range of use to users. The technology introduced allows the system a chance to expand.
The main focus was to develop with users in mind and large amounts of input throughout the applications development.
