RAC/REMPEITC-Caribe developed a comprehensive GIS-based database of the Maritime Traffic in the Wider Caribbean, primarily to address Risk Assessment associated with the shipping activities in the region, and for other purposes related to the protection and development of the marine environment in the Wider Caribbean Region.

This tool provides a visualization of the aggregated routes and the traffic density, as well as ports activities and other data useful for oil spill risk assessment. It allows applying filters (type of vessels, ports of departure etc.) and several display options are proposed. The user has the possibility to export the data and to generate reports.

The tool requires the latest version of your chosen internet browser.

It is available online at: http://www.caribbeanmaritimetraffic.org.

For more information on how this tool was developed, you can consult the report of the project here.

RAC/REMPEITC-Caribe maintains the website to keep this information system updated and accurate. If errors are brought to our attention, we shall try to correct them. If you have feedback, comments or questions on the tool, or if you notice errors, please share them with us by email: rempeitc@cep.unep.org.
