Press Release: EMSA Launches New, Map-based Shipping Surveillance System
From 10th March, EU Member States will have access to a new, userfriendly web service for tracking shipping in European waters. For the first time, EMSA's new SafeSeaNet tracking module — called STIRES — allows authorities to see all commercial vessels in and around EU waters in a single view. This will be closely followed by the picture for the whole world. The information has been available to Member States in the SafeSeaNet system for some time, but this is the first time that users will be able to see it in a fully interactive, multi-functional display.
