This project provides the material to support the work undertaken by the Data Science Campus to explore the operation, use and relationships between ports in the UK at a macro level and the behaviour and operational characteristics of ships at a micro level.
Specifically we explore:
- ship travelling behaviours
- traffic at ports and related factors
- port capacity utilisation
- national and international port relationships
- inbound ship delays
The Automatic Identification System (AIS) and Consolidated European Reporting System (CERS) data sets, provided by Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), were used for this study.
