Feature Friday: Go Hands Free by "Following" Your Vessel

Posted by Nicole Pereira

Here’s an oldie but goodie…

If you are one of our PortVision users that has particular interest in the movement of a specific vessel and would like to follow it over an extended time period (like an hour or a day), use our “Follow Vessel” feature.  This will ensure that your vessel of interest remains centered in the map display, and the map will move around it.

From the map view you can select any vessel and a red circle appears. Then, in the Actions menu on the right side of the page, click “Follow Vessel”.

This will now allow you to keep your scheduled vessel centered on the map as position updates occur. This can be particularly helpful in a dispatch or operations center environment, where you can remain hands free and still keep track of your moving vessel in PortVision.
