Calculating Sea Voyages with Google Maps

Searoute Finder is a Google Maps based application to measure port-to-port distances all over the world.

Using Searoute Finder it is possible to enter a port of departure and the port of your destination and find out how far the voyage will be and how long it is likely to take. The estimated length of the voyage is calculated not only on the distance of the voyage but on the weight of the vessel and its speed class.

Searoute Finder is the work of THGIS. They are happy to hear feedback about the map on the Searoute Finder Facebook page or by e-mail at info.thgis.hu.
