Ship Tracking with Google Maps
Yesterday I revisited real-time tracking site Localiza Todo and I realised that they have added a lot of new cool features to their real-time map of ships and other vehicles.
Localiza Todo uses the Google Maps API to show in real-time the location of ships, planes, mobile phones and satellites. A really nice feature of the map is that you can select an individual vessel or a port and view an animation of its movements over the last 24 hours.
The map also features a Google Earth browser plugin view so it is also possible to track individual vehicles in 3D.
