What I find that is fascinating is that there are all of these web sites with live AIS data. Does anyone know how these data is captured and where it is obtained from? I was under the impression that AIS was a ship-to-ship system that ran over VHF, I have no idea how live data from that can be captured and used in Google Earth.
