Access to all AIS data
To access all AIS data, the user must complete a registration form specifying, among other things, the reason for access. These data are mainly shared with public authorities and ports, but others can also apply for access. The reason for accessing the data will determine whether access is granted.
There will be restrictions related to the use of data from fishing vessels under 15 metres and recreational crafts under 45 metres, including the proviso that they must not be used for anything other than the stated purpose and will not be distributed to third parties. You can apply for access to the closed component by contacting . Once you have registered, you will receive an email, which you must use to confirm your email address. You will then be able to log in and apply for extended access or to configure your existing access.
Use of the data will normally link up to a TCPIP socket connected to one of the Norwegian Coastal Administration’s AIS servers. The AIS data stream is in standard IEC format IEC 62320-1.
