EMSA data made more customisable

The European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) has launched a new platform which can combine and process data from its own applications and external sources.

The Integrated Maritime Data Environment (IMDatE) went live on 1 March 2013 to provide more configurable services to users, customised to their specific needs.

Among the new functionalities are: more options for data visualisation, a single sign-on process, new machine-to-machine interfaces and automated vessel behaviour monitoring.

EMSA notes that verification of data will also help to improve the quality of data across the systems, for example through the confirmation of vessel details across different vessel registries.

Users who combine functions, such as vessel traffic monitoring and marine pollution control, if they have the necessary access rights, will be able to obtain an overview of maritime activity in their area of interest, integrating data which would otherwise only be available through a range of different individual applications.

EMSA says it is currently exploring the possibility of adding further additional streams of data, such as Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) data and satellite AIS data.
