The project was developed for Maritime Data System GmbH as a freelance study for Voith GmbH.

The goal was to perform studies of the offshore supply vessels (OSV) behavior under different weather conditions in the area of the North Sea and compare different OSV in terms of their time on duty in harsh weather conditions.

Here are some screenshots demonstrating the shiny app which illustrates vessels’ on-duty locations based on two years of their AIS positions.
