Maritime accidents

System for recording maritime accidents is an integration of web technology, database and GIS technology for results display and presentation of information.

It is a system used by the Ministry of sea, transport and infrastructure, and it remote locations (port authorities and offices. Data on maritime accidents, vessels and persons involved, damage suffered, victims (if some) are entered into the base.
On the basis of such a database, accident places are marked on maps and so called “black zones” i.e. dangerous places of navigation. Also, analyses show distribution of accidents by types of vessel, periods, and owner companies.
