There are several interesting services on the internet when it comes to traffic. With the war between Russia and Ukraine, Flightradar24 became even more popular, with many people analyzing air traffic and trying to detect the movement of Russian oligarchs. But there is also the Portuguese service AirNav RadarBox.

For boats and ships there is an identical service called MarineTraffic.

MarineTraffic is not a recent service, as we already made it known in 2012. This service provides vessel location positions based on data AIS.

In real time, this service presents locations, ship departures and arrivals, ship types, ship flags and conditions and other information important to maritime traffic.

The data are provided for informational purposes only and are not related by any means to the safety of navigation. But even in this way they allow real information about their routes, which may be out of time for security reasons.

This service is also available for iOS and android that allow you to access this data from your smartphone, you can even be looking at a boat and know right away what type of boat it is, its origin and what it transports. All thanks to the navigation systems that transmit these positions around the world.

On desktop, the service features too much advertising. In mobile apps, in addition to being more fluid, advertising is also avoided.
