Videos from our workshop Insights from Vessel Tracking Data: A Workshop on Analyzing and Visualizing Maritime Activity on May 4th, 2023, are now online!
The event aimed to identify user requirements, challenges, and barriers using Automatic Identification System (AIS) data and to solve these. We presented existing software solutions to clean and organize AIS data and machine learning approaches to identify and predict vessel behaviors. The workshop intended to summarize research areas and determine how the visualization of AIS data can add value to researchers and communities.
We like to thank our speakers Tyler Veinot (DFO Marine Spatial Planning), Cassandra Konecny (DFO – NL), Claudio DiBacco (DFO – Maritimes), Sarah Bailey (DFO), Jay Kumar (Dalhousie University, IBDA), David Barclay (Dalhousie University, Oceanography), Kimia Mostaghimi (Dalhousie University, Engineering), Lee Croft (DFO), Zahra Sadeghi (Dalhousie University, IBDA), Mae Seto (Dalhousie University, Engineering), Mark Stoddard (Dalhousie University, Engineering, DRDC), Ruixin Song (Memorial University of Newfoundland), Gabriel Spadon (Dalhousie University, IBDA), Matthew Smith (Dalhousie University, MERIDIAN), and Ron Pelot (Dalhousie University, Engineering).
We would also like to acknowledge the land we at MERIDIAN and ONC are situated on:
Dalhousie University is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. We recognize that the Peace and Friendship treaties signed between the British Crown and the Mi’kmaq (unlike many other historic treaties in Canada) did not involve surrender of land. “We are all Treaty people” reflects that the Peace and Friendship treaties apply to all parties involved, Indigenous and settler alike.
