About ArcticInfo

  • The service is developed and operated by barentswatch.no on behalf of the Norwegian Coastal Administration.
  • ArcticInfo replaces ArcticWeb, a digital information service established by the Danish Maritime Authority in 2013 to provide information services for shipping in waters off the coast of Greenland.
  • Since the Norwegian Coastal Administration took over the service in 2018, it has been further developed and expanded to apply to several sea areas.
  • The service collects ship-specific information from the ship registers NIS/NOR.
